It was during this period of time that Jewish religious life and education succeeded in a modern, pluralistic and democratic society for the first time in history. Much of the Torah practice and scholarship that typifies American Jewry today stands as a tribute to Rabbi Dr. Samuel Belkin, a singularly gifted man, and to the university he helped create.

A young, poor immigrant, Belkin grasped the opportunity of an open, benevolent American society to renew the Jewish communitys ability to combine its eternal teachings with the contemporary virtues of the adopted land which he deeply loved.

This book also discusses the rebirth of the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations, an important agency of Torah life, and describes the legacy of Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik, the preeminent Torah leader of this exciting period.
