I hope my recent contributions to this page have made a difference. Under the enlightenment page i corrected some dates so that they would correspond with those on pages cited. I also went through and made changes to help with the flow of sentences. Finally, i thoroughly agree with most of the above comments, and feel that as a whole this page either needs to be re-written or at least have more information added to it so that it is doing more then just stating basic weakly related facts. --Trumper1824 (talk) 18:32, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
Excuse me, but I'm speaking from ignorance, but I didn't know that assimilation involved giving up one's Jewish identity, culture, or religion. I thought it could also mean fitting in with, and integrating with, a society. For example, one can speak accentless English without giving up the ability to speak Hebrew or Yiddish; be friends and partners with people of all cultural backgrounds; and so forth.22.214.171.124 (talk) 02:45, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
Basically, I could not believe that the previously one-sided, narrowly religious article would be allowed on Wikipedia. I actually found the previously POV’d version on an outside site mirroring Wikipedia. As a gentile, I am little-qualified, but believe it does more NPOV justice to the subject than before.

It is still a pretty terrible, POV article. Not quite sure what it is trying to say.--Parkwells (talk) 00:19, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
