9781580232593: I Am Jewish: Personal Reflections Inspired by the Last Words of Daniel Pearl

Being Jewish. What does it mean--today--and for the future? Listen in as Jews of all backgrounds reflect, argue, and imagine.

When Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl was brutally murdered in Pakistan, many Jews were particularly touched by his last words affirming his Jewish identity. Many were moved to reflect on or analyze their feelings toward their lives as Jews.

The saying "two Jews, three opinions" well reflects the Jewish community's broad range of views on any topic. I Am Jewish captures this richness of interpretation and inspires Jewish people of all backgrounds to reflect upon and take pride in their identity.

Contributions, ranging from major essays to a paragraph or a sentence, come from adults as well as young people in the form of personal feelings, statements of theology, life stories and historical reflections. Despite the diversity, common denominators shine through clearly and distinctly.

Contributors include:
Ehud Barak - Sylvia Boorstein - Edgar M. Bronfman - Alan Colmes - Alan Dershowitz - Kirk Douglas - Richard Dreyfuss - Kitty Dukakis - Dianne Feinstein - Tovah Feldshuh - Debbie Friedman - Milton Friedman - Thomas L.
