Can Social Justice Save the American Jewish Soul?
Jewish Lights Publishing, 2008
Social justice should be a more prominent part of the Jewish communal agenda, the author insists. He posits a tension between two fundamental conceptions of the Jewish mission on earth: an Exodus consciousness, representing particularist and tribal concerns, and a Sinai consciousness, representing universalistic and moral responsibilities. While both are necessary, the author argues that a move toward the Sinai consciousness is needed in order to ensure Jewish continuity and relevance.
