The author presents a list of fifteen paradoxes in American Jewish life today. Some key paradoxes include: the cost of Jewish education; that today's Jews are wealthier but give less than past generations; that the most innovative Jews are not necessarily involved in the Jewish community; the lack of intellectuals in Jewish governance; and the lack of dialogue between Jewish denominations.
