America: A Religious Country

By Alan Mittleman

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), January 2005

Emphasizing that the 2004 election will be remembered for its emphasis on values, the author argues that Jews, like Democrats, can either define themselves as a permanent opposition, consolidating on the left and delivering jeremiads to the culture, or they can come to terms with America's durable and politically expressive traditional religiosity. The author concludes that Jews, among others, should find their way back to the center, lest they be left out in the cold of a very long political winter.
