    Jewish American Paradox: The Chosen People and Modern Choices
    Mnookin, Robert. Jewish American Paradox: The Chosen People and Modern Choices. Public Affairs, 2018. View the BookAbstract
    In this thoughtful and perceptive book, Robert H. Mnookin argues that the answers of the past no longer serve American Jews today. The book boldly promotes a radically inclusive American-Jewish community--one where being Jewish can depend on personal choice and public self-identification, not simply birth or formal religious conversion. Instead of preventing intermarriage or ostracizing those critical of Israel, he envisions a community that embraces diversity and debate, and in so doing, preserves and strengthens the Jewish identity into the next generation and beyond.
