Charles S. Liebman, 2000

Unfortunately, the tendency has been to assign seek to assess the overall state of American Jews in terms of their Jewish identity or commitment, to assign as it were some overall grade. And when one does that, the grade is a low one. Our argument is not over the grade, but the grading system.
