How to Destroy the Jewish Community
Today my Modern Jewish History students take their midterm exam. I wish them all best of luck. For an essay I have offered them the following question:
You have been hired by the new People's Democratic Multicultural Party of Tolerance government to construct a plan to destroy the Jewish community. As a civilized country we are only willing to engage in very moderate levels of violence and prefer that Jews simply assimilate out of their own free will. Based on what we have learned in class, what would you advise? Please give specific examples to your superiors who may not be as well versed in Jewish history as you are.
I throw open the question to member of classroom Izgad. How would you go about destroying Judaism?
