Read full description of the books Chutzpah:"Chutzpah" by Alan Dershowitz
The definition of chutzpah is something like hubris or extreme arrogance.What Mr.Dershowitz is urging on his co-religionists is to
assert themselves as first-class cititzens,rather than accepting a role
as a second-class minority.
The author points out that because of the uniqueness of America in
not having an established religion,the Jewish people for the first time
in 2,000 years should avail themselves of the opportunity to participate
as full-fledged citizens.
He then recounts the tragedy of the Holocaust and the use of Jews as
scapegoats in Russia,Eastern Europe and the Arab world. This has been
done to cover up the inadequacies of the current as well as former
regimes. In former times this scapegoating was practiced in Western
Europe as well. In contrast to those ruling classes, today's America
offers almost unlimited opportunities for the Jewish person to enjoy.
This book will be most meaningful to those who are Jewish. One might
consider it an extended "pep talk" with a good deal of illustrative
material. For the non-Jewish person who wishes to explore the Jewish
psyche and how it got that way,there is a treasure trove of material
to be discovered.
