|Abstract/Description:||Closing thank you address at the end of the conference. Dr. Finkelstein speaks, acknowledging the difficulty of self-dissatisfaction as a rabbi. The looming threat of atomic weapons and a population boom that will likely influence the economy adversely. The empowerment of the previously powerless is changing the world. The quota of Chinese immigrants has offended China. The plight of the Jew and the plight of the African-American have parallels, at least in certain experiences of persecution. Persecution isn't a chosen predicament.|
