The American Synagogue Responds to Change

By Jonathan D. Sarna

Cincinnati Judaism Review, Spring 1991

Sarna traces the evolution of the American synagogue from the seventeenth century until the present. He focuses on how the American synagogue has, over time, responded to change. He sketches out some of the major turning points in the history of the American synagogue with the goal of helping the audience understand how and why the synagogue changed over time, and how these changes shaped the American synagogue as we know it today.
