“A People In Between”: JCUA’s Jane Ramsey Shares Her Thoughts with The Jewish Daily Forward for Jewish Book Month

Jane Ramsey

In celebration of Jewish Book Month, during “30 Days, 30 Texts,” The Jewish Daily Forward is having community leaders write a series of reflections on books that influenced their Jewish journeys.  JCUA Executive Director Jane Ramsey shared her thoughts with The Forward on Rabbi J. Robert Marx’s “A People In Between: The Paradox of Jewish Interstitiality .”

Here is an excerpt of her post:

Marx brings clarity to the past, present, and future of Judaism through this lens. His thorough and bold analysis leads to a hopeful future for Judaism and our Jewish community — if we heed his warnings and fulfill positive, rather than negative, interstitial societal roles. Implied in this conclusion is a Jewish community that actively seeks alliances that lead to a just society.
