A Partisan Guide to the Jewish Problem, by Milton Steinberg
The problem Rabbi Steinberg discusses in this volume is, basically, how the modem Western Jew can best achieve and express identification with the tradition and destiny of his people and how Judaism can best be preserved in the contemporary world and perpetuated for the future.
The author thinks that we ought first to clear up the question: What is Judaism?, His answer to this is that Judaism is the culture of the Jews. But that, of course, at once raises the further question: What are the Jews? The answer to that one is that the Jews are a people—not a religion or a nation, but a people.
