This second volume of the Jewish Role in American Life continues the Casden Institute's ongoing examination of the contemporary American Jewish community and its contributions to life and culture in the United States. Focusing again on five key areas-values, politics, education, image, and culture-this year's volume draws on recent scholarly and popular literature to shed light on contemporary crises and advancements in biomedical ethics, international politics, experiential learning, the arts, and popular film.
