Jewish Identity Transformed

“This is the destination of the Jewish journey – the Promised Land, the holy city, a society of justice, generosity and peace. And in the transition from Exodus to Sinai, from am to edah, Jewish identity itself is transformed from passive to active, from fate to faith, from a people defined by what happens to it to a people defined by the social order they are called on to create.”
