How Do We Shape An Authentic
And Fulfilling Jewish Identity?

RABBI IRWIN GRONER

Special to The Jewish News

he Torah reading Ba-
midbar describes a
census of the children
of Israel during the days of
Moses. Each tribe was to be
numbered and the total
figures tallied. In the midst of
this seemingly prosaic report,
the Bible introduces a pro-
found spiritual insight: "Take
ye the sum of all the Con-
gregation in Israel . . ." By
what method? "By their
families and by their fathers'
houses." Every person was
reckoned not as a separate
and detached individual, not
as an interchangeable unit in
a series, but rather as a
member of a mishpacha, or
family, in relationship to his
father's house.
An important truth is
taught. One's identity is
established on the founda-
tions of home, family and

lineage - in short, on a sense
of belonging. This helps ex-
plain why modern man, so
rootless and insecure, feels
such a great yearning and
deep hunger for the need to
belong, to be linked with
others by ties of affection and
regard.
During World II, the Luft-
waffe so relentlessly bombed
London that children were
sent to the countryside. A lit-
tle boy separated from his
mother and unaware of her
location reacted to his plight
by declaring: "I am nobody's
nothing." Each of us wants to
be somebody's something.
This need is so strong that if
we cannot belong to what is
good, then we will belong to
what is evil.
What accounts for the
delinquency of criminal
gangs? We can understand it
as the revenge of social out-
casts on the society that has
abandoned them, or so they
feel. The home is uninviting;
the neighborhood is a slum;
parents are missing, and the
heart craves companionship it
will accept on whatever terms

demanded. The young who
feel frustrated and rejected
join together as they turn
with hostility and violence to
that ordered society that re-
presents to them the enemy.
Are the victims of insecuri-
ty, loneliness and isolation
limited to the poor and under-

privileged? Not necessarily.
Material possessions alone
cannot satisfy the hunger for
belonging. Consider a gifted
and promising young man or
woman who feels rootless and
alienated. Consider a suc-
cessful entrepreneur who
realizes one day that is home
is not his castle. Consider a
woman, outwardly graceful
and serene, but inwardly
distressed because she feels
unloved and unwanted. Con-
sider an older person who
seemingly has all the
material security he wants
