My offering to this volume honors a part of Richard Lee's commitment to social justice that we share as North American Jews. I want to consider a question we both have wrestled with as socially engaged scholars: What kind of Jewishness do Jews create when they pursue social justice in North America today?

When people come together to engage in collective political action, they also gather together to construct themselves as political agents. Part of this process involves analyzing the ways in which the particular uniting issue is important to each of them. This requires explaining the parts of one's social being or the social identities through which we make our most powerful connection to the issue. Often such connections are constructions of we-ness: racism or sexism is directed against us; homophobia hurts us, etc.
