The Jewish Marketplace

By Chava Weissler

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), January 2004

The author asserts that marketing has taken center stage as a conscious strategy of engaging Jews in Judaism, and the market has both pleasures and costs. The institutions marketing these spiritual, communal, and ethnic commodities may hope that they will draw Jews into participation in community and a sense of history. Yet these commodities are, paradoxically, still within the parameters of the consumer society, in which the fulfillment of the self is the paramount value.
