Suggested Discussion Questions:
1. What kind of “service” is Messinger referring to? How could this service serve as a "rite of passage" for all Jews? Have you had this kind of an experience?
2. The world’s very first brother, Cain, asked God, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” Are we? What level of care and intervention does this responsibility place on us?
3. How does Messinger’s vision blend the particular and the universal trends of Judaism?
