Dear JTS Family,
How can Jews preserve Jewish distinctiveness and yet join with others in partnership and dialogue?
This week I continue my discussion about the need to maintain a balance between "particular" and "universal." Read my latest essay, "Jews and Others, Continued," and let me know what you think. You can also review the responses to my essay by Catharine Clark, Rabbi Menachem Creditor, and Eric Woodward.Visit the "Conservative Judaism: A Community Conversation" blog—and follow me on Twitter @Arnold Eisen (twitter.com/ArnoldEisen) as well.
