Item Description: Scribner/Simon & Schuster, 1997. Hardcover. Book Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Type: Hard Back Second Printing of First US Edition. Hardcover Book and Dust Jacket As New. Binding of blue half-cloth with silver titles, ivory paper-wrapped boards, spotlessly clean; tight, solid and square. Daniel Gordis gives a call for American Jews to embrace "chosenness" as their distinctive contribution to humankind and the key to their survival. He states that American Jews simply have no conception of why they matter or what their tradition stands for. He argues that by assimilating so thoroughly into the American culture, Jews have lost their distinctive voice and that important elements in American culture undermine American Jewish identity and discusses what those elements are. He suggests that American Jews must be willing to stand out rather than blend in and urges a return to the substance and richness of Jewish tradition. 302 pages. Includes Glossary of Hebrew Names and Terms; Chapter Notes; Suggested Reading List; and Indexes. 8.75 x 5.75 inches. Publisher: Scribner/Simon Schuster, NY 1997. Bookseller Inventory # 013196
