The author argues against the form by which Shaye Cohen and Lawrence Schiffman approach the concerns of "disunity" among American Jewry. Instead, she reformulates new questions: Why are we so concerned about disunity? Why do we fear schism and the threat of schism? What relationship do the previous four or five decades have with the current situation? Why do we want to learn from history?
