Suggested Discussion Questions:
1. Do you believe that the Jewish community needs to be “out front” on public issues that do not directly impact on Jews? What, in your mind, are those issues?
2. Who do you think “speaks” for the Jewish community? Whose actions register on the public consciousness as representing the Jewish community? Rabbis? Leaders of Jewish organizations? Jewish members of Congress? People with high public profiles in business, academia or popular culture who happen to be Jews?
3. How important is it that the good works of Jews be done under Jewish auspices? Is making a gift to alleviate world hunger through Oxfam—a secular non-profit-- different in kind from a gift serving the same purpose through Mazon, a Jewish non-profit organization?
