Bitton argues for a “balanced particularism” that allows one to continue to contribute to all of humanity. “This vision of Jewish particularism does not assume that there is something ‘better’ about Jews than non-Jews,” but simply, that the Jewish people are one family, with a shared history, destiny and humanity. She believes that universalism only works in theory, because people tend to put family first. She argues against extreme particularism and advocates for one that is balanced and encourages a “dignity of difference.”
