Is Everything In America Broken?
In These Times with Rabbi Ammi Hirsch: Alana Newhouse
"Is everything in America broken?"
That's what Tablet Magazine's editor-in-chief Alana Newhouse has been wondering — are the very institutions that have produced and protected American life now, all at once, laying bare their critical faults?
And so she believes the most vital debate in America today is not between the left and the right, but rather between those who believe there's something fundamentally broken in America and those who do not: those who are invested in our current institutions and those who want to build anew.
Since Alana founded Tablet in 2009, she's built it into a hugely influential online magazine that takes the Jewish community seriously. I value and respect her analysis of the problems America and the American Jewish community are facing, even — and especially — when she points out what we are doing wrong.
