Abstract:

The dynamics of the American Jewish community are constantly changing along with the issues being confronted both by the broader American society and by the Jewish community itself. This volume attempts to take a snapshot of both the Jewish community and American society from a special vantage point.

The first part of the book sets forth the challenges faced by the community in light of the terror attack of 11 September 2001, the second intifada, the rise in global anti-Semitism, and the second Gulf War. It lays the groundwork for the second part, which consists of interviews with seventeen prominent American Jews.
