Ina L. Yalof, Ina Abrams

Publisher: St. Martin's

Abrams, a writer on medical subjects, here offers a bracing and fascinating anthology that includes writers as various as Alan Dershowitz, Anita Diamant, Golda Meir, and George Washington on the various meanings of the Jewish experience in America. By no means do these writers speak with a single voice but then dialog is a crucial part of the Jewish tradition. This is not always comfortable reading, as writers confront the Holocaust, anti-Semitism, and the controversy surrounding the identity of modern Israel which is also as it should be. Abrams has created a fine and compulsively readable collection, illuminating for Jews and non-Jews alike. Highly recommended.
