The book by Rabbi Kahane was a true eye opener. It had me thinking in ways that I, an American assimilated Jew NEVER thought of. It is about time that someone spoke up and helped Jews feel proud of how special and unique they are, and how rather then hiding these facts, we should embrace them and honor them. This book is a masterpiece and I strongly suggest it.

Kahane has, in this one work, described the problem of assimilation in terms that make it easy for anyone to understand. More so, he has expressed quite succinctly why it is a problem.
5つ星のうち 4.0Well-thought out, angry, funny but marred by digression.1999/1/25
By カスタマー - (Amazon.com)
Rabbi Kahane fiercely and accurately documents and decries the inability of the American Jewish establishment, and particularly Reform and Conservatism, to instill in young Jews any reason to be Jewish. Kahane states the reason, clearly and to the point. The last portion of the book is, however, marred by angry digressions.
