The contemporary legacy of the post‐Holocaust movement for modern Judaism and Jewish self‐understanding is considered in an examination of modernist and postmodernist thought. For various reasons, the primacy of the Holocaust has been seen by many as opposed to a number of recent developments in Jewish life, especially the return to texts, the renewal of ritual celebration, and the commitment to “liberal” values. The author encourages an appreciation of the realism and yet the idealism of the post‐Holocaust thinkers and points out that their goal, like that of every Jew, is to find a way to return to the past in order to live into the future with integrity and hope.
