Inhaltsangabe: In this spirited essay, Ira Bedzow, Senior Scholar of The Aspen Center for Social Values gives a compelling account for how the Jewish tradition conceives of the role of Jewish social values in daily life, and in how their utilization can strengthen the Jewish identity of Jews in America as well as improve the welfare of society as a whole.
The tension between thinking and doing has been a recurrent theme throughout Jewish history. Bedzow and the ACSV seek to do both - to deeply consider the social values which will embolden and strengthen a Jewish community that has grown increasingly disaffected and indifferent, at the same time as implementing systems for change and delivery of those values. ACSV's efforts to promote these values and the Jewish tradition, the story of the Jewish people, by which we learn those values is ambitious and worthy.
-- Rabbi B. Elka Abrahamson, President, The Wexner Foundation
We have connected to the worldwide web and disconnected from our communities. We are constantly entertained but seldom challenged or inspired. Our lack of commitment and our loss of community are not without consequence. Bedzow understands this and challenges and inspires his Jewish community to return to its rich tradition, one which can animate, motivate, and inform a deeper understanding of one's self and one's relationships to one's neighbors. His clarion call to commitment within a community and tradition is much-needed in our individualistic, shallow and, frankly, dispiriting day and age.
