In this article, the writer notes that understanding America is directly linked to understanding its mosaic of ethnic, religious and racial groups living and working together. The writer discusses that one of the most important groups is the Jewish community, which has made enormous contributions to the development and evolution of America. The writer looks at the three separate waves of Jewish immigrants to the U.S.A. and studies the modern Jewish community in the U.S.A. The writer concludes that the particularity of the Jewish community is the result of the interaction between the informal environment, i.e. family, and the formal, i.e. the rabbi and synagogue, as well as the community's tie to Israel, and its educational, political and social values.
