From the Great Fringe of the Diaspora

By Sarah Lefton

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), January 2008

The author argues that these days, people are so thirsty for "the authentic" Judaism that innovative Jewish practice has become "uncool," even, ironically, in cultures of innovation such as California's Bay Area. The author challenges us to stop shooting down innovation and to focus on our connection to community, Torah and God, which can be fostered through many channels.
