The modern epoch is ended. Its cherished visions, insofar as they were particularly modern, leave us confused at best, or at least dissatisfied. The Jewish people as am (nation) and edah (assembled people), in all its parts, is undergoing crisis and reconstitution of the kind that occurs once every 300 years or so.
