.

erusalem forms the
spiritual center of the
Jewish people in a very
simple sense. It is the one
place, and the only place, with
which almost all Jews all over
the world identify, for which
they care. Jews in New York
scarcely realize that there are
Jews, in great numbers, in
Sao Paolo, Johannesburg, and
Sydney, and, for their part,
Jews in those outlying areas
take little interest in what
happens in American Jewry.
But everyone, everywhere,
cares about Jerusalem and
the State of Israel. In that
fundamental and necessary
sense, the vision orJerusalem
as the center of the Jewish
world is realized in our hearts
and sentiment.
But, is Jerusalem the
source of important ideas,
those that make sense of the
Jewish condition throughout
the world and explain to Jews
in the here and now who they
are and what they are and
why? I think not. In all the
Jewish world, who reads a
great work of philosophy of
Judaism, written in
Jerusalem? And what vast
audiences throughout the
Diaspora fill halls to hear the
word of Jerusalem's sages and
scholars? There are no books
of more than routine
academic interest coming
from Jerusalem (and, in the
area of Jewish studies, few
enough of those), and the last
great masters, figures of
moral authority throughout
the Jewish world, coming to
us from Jerusalem have now
died.
Ray Kook among the
religious, David Ben Gurion
among the secular, and Mar-
tin Buber among the
philosophical — none of these
moral authorities finds a
counterpart today. Apart from
some local celebrities such as
Adin Steinsaltz, Jerusalem is
utterly without influence on
the intellectual life of the
Diaspora. Proof is that sholar-
ship printed in the United
States from Jerusalem con-
sists, these days, of reprints of
works published 20 to 40
years ago. That means
Jerusalem has nothing new
to say.
