This chapter critiques the papers in this volume and points to paths not taken. As a historian the author views contemporary challenges within the larger framework of religious continuity. As a journalist, she asks the question, “So what?” What's the bottom line and why should we care? As a starting point, she offers three snapshots from her own tradition, Judaism.
