A review of the book, Lest Memory Cease: Finding Meaning in the American Jewish Past by Henry L. Feingold is presented. The book presents Feingold's collected articles, some of which originated as lectures to Jewish organizations, and others that appeared mainly in the labor Zionist magazine, Jewish Frontier. One of Feingold's virtues, present here, is a skillful analysis of the contemporary American Jewish scene. He draws historical parallels with restraint, his articles and lectures are fluent and read easily — and they make points. The most prominent of Feingold's observations is the effect of liberalism and secularization on American Jews.
