Service: Redrawing the Face of American Jewry

By Koby Oppenheim

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), November 2005

The author asserts that as America prepares for a demographic reshuffling, the future role of the Jewish community is increasingly in question. Younger Jews are not lacking initiative or creativity; rather, we are missing a communal vision. He discusses Birthright and volunteering as tools for the needed changes. He concludes that complementing the emotional charge of Israel with the physical involvement of volunteering, we can redraw the face of American Jewry.
