At the Core of Jewish Citizenship: Jewish Social Change and Service

By Jennie Rosenn

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), November 2004

Rosenn claims that by devoting time to various social causes Jews will come to a new understanding of why it is important for Judaism to survive in today's world. She asks, "who are we and for what do we stand?" and points to Jewish social change and service programs as the answer. She cites various social justice programs as successful examples that engage and encourage young Jews to develop a new understanding of the world. She suggests that this model become the new norm to enhance Jewish communal understanding of identity.
