Description
"Goren, a leading scholar of American Jewish history, collects ten articles thatappeared in scholarly journals between 1961 and 1997. The pieces are tied together, however, withthe theme of how American Jews sought to maintain a sense of community and how they used politicsand public culture to do so. The essays trace the manner in which four generations of American Jewsmanaged to maintain a resilient community. Goren points to the late 1950s as the baseline thatdemarcated American Jewry from its earlier history. The poverty of the Jewish immigrant generationsand the memory of the Depression had been replaced with an affluence that opened up new socialopportunities. As American Jews became ever more aware of the excesses of the Nazi genocide againstthe Jews of Europe, and of the precarious status of the State of Israel, the decade of the 1960switnessed the emergence of a functional consensus within the Jewish community, which was grounded ontwo public commitments that continue into the present: assuring Israel's security and striving for aliberal US (and, by extension, a liberal world order). To be read along with On Equal Terms: Jews inAmerica, 1881, 1981 by Lucy Dawidowicz (CH, Apr'83). Both general and academic readership."-J. Fischel, Millersville University, Choice, November 2000
