To Be a Jew in the Free World: The Struggle for Identity in Modern Times
Winter 2014

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. One side of the coin promised security, acceptance, and affluence with the escape from anti-Semitism and discrimination; while the other threatened assimilation, confusion of loyalties, and the possibility of disappearing as a nation.

In To Be a Jew in the Free World, we examine the personal and religious struggles that individuals and communities confronted as they faced the challenges of changing times: stories that provoke debate and shed insight into what it means to live as a Jew today.
