A Letter in the Scroll

Understanding Our Jewish Identity & Exploring the Legacy of the World’s Oldest Religion.
by Rabbi Jonathan Sacks

At least half of young Jews today are turning their backs on their Jewish heritage, notes Sacks, the chief rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth. Tracing some of the milestones in Jewish history, he poses questions for these Jews: ‘What are the claims that Jewish identity makes upon me?’ ‘What is the nature of the collective Jewish journey that I am asked to continue?’ ‘How did we lose the way?’ He is proud to be a Jew because of Judaism’s moral purpose, commitment to the poor and oppressed, faith in freedom, belief in the Torah, and continuing tradition. He urges young Jews to continue the journey, to pass it on to their children, to be a ‘letter in the scroll’ of the eternal people. A most profound and eloquently expressed meditation, this is highly recommended for all Jews as well as for non-Jews looking to better understand the Jewish legacy and commitment.
