Saving Remnants: Feeling Jewish in America

by Sara Bershtel, Allen Graubard


View All Available Formats & Editions


This provocative book argues that in America today, being Jewish is just another way of being American. Based on hundreds of interviews with American Jews of the postwar generation ranging from the least involved to the most fervent, Saving Remnants offers a new vision of what ethnicity has come to mean and an original exploration of the force traditional group loyalties can have in a culture where individual choice and personal fulfillment are central values.
