Identity and Community: Current Organizing Concerns of the Jewish Community

By David A. Teutsch

Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association (RRA), Fall 2003

The author argues that changes in Jewish communal attention and terminology have facilitated a gradual but steady increase in concern for North American Jewish life on the part of such Jewish institutions as Federations, Jewish Community Centers (JCCs), and Jewish family service agencies. He asserts that emphasis is most often on strengthening Jewish identity and intensifying Jewish community. The author discusses how to define, measure and strengthen Jewish identity.
