Volume V: A Time for Healing.

A Time for Healing chronicles a time of rapid economic and social progress. Yet this phenomenal success, explains Edward S. Shapiro, came at a cost. Shapiro takes seriously the potential threat to Jewish culture posed by assimilation and intermarriage—asking if the Jewish people, having already endured so much, will survive America's freedom and affluence as well.
