Andy Bachman from Jewschool recently participated in a conference call with 900 other rabbis in America. It’s a good read.
What’s interesting here, of course, is that of the questions he fielded only one of them had to do with Israel, and the rest of them had to do with education, health-care, and social programs.
Now I know, you’re thinking, “American Jews have issues on their horizon that don’t involve Israel? You’re insane!” Well, I assume it’s true. Being Canadian, of course, I don’t really have my finger on the pulse of American Jewry as much as I might like to think from time to time, but I’ve heard rumors that Jews fall across all economic classes and thus have concerns common to the rest of America.
Who knew, right?
