A Future Without Hate or Need brings to life the rich and multi-layered lives of a dissident political community. Many of the women in this secular Jewish community were activists who attempted to weave together their ethnic particularity – their identity as Jews with their internationalist class politics. They created lives filled with song, dance, literature, culture, politics, and concern for working people all over the world in their commitment to a just world and lasting peace.
