Judaism in a Nutshell: Israel
Apathy Via Books
According to the American Jewish
Committee's 2000 Annual Survey of
American Jewish Opinion, 41 percent
of Jews do not feel that being Jewish is

feel that participating in a synagogue
or Jewish study is important.

The JLF has begun a campaign to
educate Jews about their heritage and
beliefs by providing every home, free
of charge, with a Jewish library. The
first book distributed by the\group, the
157-page Judaism in a Nutshell: Israel,
by Shimon Apisdorf, will be sent to a
thousand "marginally and unaffiliated
Jews" across North America.
The organization is also developing
an interactive CD-ROM to be distrib-
uted with the book.
"Education is the most potent tool
we possess," Segal said, "and a book
focusing on the State of Israel and the
current Israel-Palestinian conflict will
appeal to Jews of all backgrounds who
may now be looking for a way to
reconnect with .their heritage."
Apisdorf is the co-founder and edu-
cational director of the JLF. He has
written eight of the foundation's
books, including other Judaism in a
Nutshell volumes and the Jewish
Holiday Survival Kit series.
In the past four years, the JLF, based
in Baltimore, Md., has distributed
