Tying together two posts

I blogged a while back about Jewish identity and how I had no problem with people constructing and defining their Jewish identity as they choose. This week, I blogged about three things people want in life. To tie them together, people's Jewish identity often serves those those three purposes. It gives their lives meaning/significance; it creates a moral order; and it connects them both to other Jews and to the Jewish tradition. Any discussion of Judaism or Jewish identity must acknowledge this, or else it is bound to be lacking.
