While a lot of Jews often ’feel’ Jewish – we are concerned when Jews are in trouble, we feel proud when a Jew achieves something, we feel sentimental towards various Jewish festivals, buildings, bits of history – we are intellectually trained to think non-Jewishly. For example, hardly any of us think in Jewish time, or consider contemporary issues utilising Jewish criteria. We’ll examine this phenomenon and consider whether it’s a problem. And if so, can we do anything about it?
