Denying the Melting Pot

By Louis Berlin

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, May 13, 1994

In the January 7, 1994 issue of Sh'ma, Ned Harris made the claim that Jews only recognize their Judaism in the face of antisemitism. In this response, Louis Berlin argues that rather than using antisemitism to define one's Jewish identity, Jews should be actively Jewish. This would bring joy and meaning to life.
