The Global Art of Being Jewish

By Dan Friedman

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), January 2006

The author asserts that since at least the time of Rabbi Yochanan Ben Zakkai, Jewish expression has been decentralized and distributed. With the advent of globalization, Judaism and Jewishness is being centralized and codified as never before. He argues that the process of defining and complicating identity may not be peculiar to the Jews, but it is certainly central to 21st century Jewishness.
