Judaism of today’s New York Jews would not please Moses
Weinberger, but his angry scowl might soften into an expression
of bewildered surprise.”25 Harkavy’s reaction to traditional Jew­
ish life in rural America would no doubt be equally harsh, but

ifestations of Jewish life in the “darkness of the country.”
