    The monthly magazine of opinion. Isaac was quiet and disciplined; he worshipped G-d with reverence and awe. Jewish survival book all, until anti-Semitism changed from religious bigotry to "racial" bigotry--roughly near the end of the nineteenth century--persecuted Jews generally had the option of conversion. Jews have faced dangers in the past, but this time we may be unprepared to confront the newest threat to our survival as a people, because its principal cause is our own success as individuals.

    G-d saved these children miraculously, but not until Jewish women found Jewish survival book courage to keep having children and build the nation. Everything that may Jewish survival book must be tried. As Jews and Israel become more secure against external threats, the internal threats are beginning to grow, as graphically illustrated by the recent assassination of an Israeli prime minister by a Jew, the growing conflict between fundamentalist Jews and more acculturated Jews, the increasing trends toward intermarriage and assimilation, and the decline of Jewish literacy. The even better news is that we can overcome this new threat to the continuity of American Jewish life and emerge with a more positive Judaism for the twenty-first century--a Judaism that is less dependent on our enemies for its continuity, and that rests more securely on the considerable, but largely untapped, strengths of our own heritage. I suppose you and your associates have been close students of Jewish history, as I think all of us, Jews or non-Jews, ought to be, and would you suppose that among the Jewish historians the two greatest of Jewish historians were Graetz and Dubnov?

    Everything that may work must be tried. In such periods, Jews outside Israel face a dilemma similar to that which Jewish survival book the Diaspora in its relations with the Hasmonean rulers of Palestine. It would be a tragedy if the only forms of Judaism the made it past the twenty-first century were insular, ultra-Orthodox Judaism and Israeli Zionism. One such story occurred to Rabbi Shabsi Cohen, who fled the Cossacks and survived. But beyond broad generalities, it is difficult to distill from the highly diverse Jewish sources a few programmatic essences that are easily transmittable from generation to generation, without living the kind of Jewish lives that our grandparents lived. The "chosen people" must be denied choices if Judaism is to survive.
