Can We Talk?

By Sidney Schwarz

Moment Magazine, June 2002

The American Jewish community is becoming increasingly balkanized, breaking down into narrowly formed interest groups, the author observes. While there may be positive aspects to these sub-communities, the author warns that many such Jewish sub-groups are increasingly uninterested in the well-being of the Jewish community as a whole. The various sub-parts of the Jewish community must talk to one another, the author argues, and seek to hold in common the conviction that Judaism and the Jewish community have a unique contribution to make to a society desperately in need of a moral compass.
