The Sound of One Hand Clapping

By Marlene Provizer

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), October 2003

The author focuses on the question of, Who speaks for the Jewish community? She discusses the Jewish Council on Public Affairs and the federation system as well as the rise of new Jewish membership organizations and affiliations outside the formal system. She concludes with the hope that the changes in the Jewish community will spur community relations agencies to be more innovative, inclusive and risk-taking in their approach to consensus.
