Schmoozing Summary


Schmoozing: The Private Conversations of American Jews by Joseph Halberstam

From the rigorously observant to the resolutely atheistic, Jews talk about exactly what it means to be Jewish in America. This remarkable book captures the private conversation -- with lively discussions of everything from assimilation in middle-class suburbs to the lasting legacy of the Holocaust. Jews from every walk of life dissect the stereotypes that persist to this day, assessing both the myths and the realities that they reflect. The ancient roots of the culture are examined side-by-side with the latest developments in modern Israel. And with wit and candor, they address the role of the Jew in popular culture, the values and traditions that keep the Jewish community strong, and the possibilities for the future -- adding up to a wide-ranging and fascinating look at the state of Judaism in America today.
