Writer Samuel Freedman

Writer Samuel Freedman. Hes just written a book about the state of the American Jewish Community called –Jew vs. Jew: The Struggle for the soul of American Jewry." (Simon & Schuster) Freedman believes that three fundamental questions are rending the American Jewish community today: "What is the definition of Jewish identity? Who decides what is authentic and legitimate Judaism? And what is the Jewish compact with America?" We talk with Freedman following the recent nomination of the first Jewish vice presidential candidate, Democrat Joe Lieberman. Freedman is also the author of –The Inheritance: How three families and America moved from Roosevelt to Reagan and Beyond,— which was a finalist for the 1997 Pulitzer prize.12:28:30 FORWARD PROMO (:29)12:29:00 I.D.
