• Judaism is not a passive religion, but an active life factor which has coalesced
    with the national consciousness into one organic whole. It is primarily the
    expression of a nationality whose history for thousands of years coincides with
    the history of the development of a humanity and the Jews are a nation which,
    having once acted as the leaven of the social world, is destined to be resurrected
    with the rest of civilized nations.
