The conversion of the Jews


Yakov Blotnik’s old mind hobbled slowly, as if on crutches, and though he couldn’t decide precisely what the boy was doing on the roof, he knew it wasn’t good-that is, it wasn’t-good-for-the-Jews. For Yakov Blotnik life had fractionated itself simply: things were either good-for-the-Jews or no-good-for-the-Jews.

Philip Roth, “The Conversion of the Jews” (1959)

As an outsider to American Judaism, let me trepedatiously propose a kind of informal syllogism:

(1) The Republican party is rapidly going fascist

(2) Fascism is bad for the Jews

(3) Jewish organizations should not support Republicans.
