Since World War II, Jews have experienced unprecedented acceptance and assimilation. But now as outside threats diminish, newer, more complex issues arise. Michael Brown and Bernard Lightman gathered writers from Canada and the United States, Israel and Europe to consider directions for the Jewish community to take into the twenty-first century. Writers from a variety of disciplines within and without the academy discuss faith, Israel, Diaspora culture, education, gender roles and demography, always keeping theory and practice, the past and the present in careful balance. Helpful section introductions make this an excellent introductory text, but its timeliness and depth make it unavoidable reading for anyone involved in creating the Jewish future.
