'Uncle Bernie' And the Jews

Epstein, Joseph
January 2009
Newsweek;1/19/2009, Vol. 153 Issue 3, p36
This article considered the implications of the alleged crimes of financier Bernard Madoff, whose investment company was allegedly engaged in a Ponzi scheme, for Jewish people in the U.S. The author suggests that Jewish American assimilation has blunted the seriousness of Jewish life that allowed them to influence American society during the 20th Century. The possibility that Madoff's crimes will help to change that trend is noted.
