It is particularly troubling that the initial goals of the American Jewish Congress have become marginalized or uncertain (“Is AJCongress Jack Rosen’s One-Man Show?” May 10).
The new organizational structure does not support a constituency-based mission. The constituency base was the source of many social justice ideas promoted throughout American society, especially in the areas of race and interfaith relations and development of demarcation lines between church and state. The goals of the current AJCongress remain unclear, and Jack Rosen has been unwilling or unable to state them. How can support be maintained beyond current board members if there are not ideas to attract others in the Jewish community?
