This report concerns men and women who have moved Judaism from the periphery to the center of their lives. It also concerns several places of worship that have played an important role in promoting a renewal of Jewish experience for them. The research on which this report is based was exploratory in nature. Although the practices adopted by those we interviewed - the surface manifestations of religious renewal - are ancient and seemingly familiar, the historical circumstances within which they were adopted are new and, in many ways, unprecedented in Jewish history. The subjective meaning of religious renewal among Jews today must be understood in its own terms. These terms are likely to be neither as familiar as the traditional might hope, nor as alien as the secular might assume. Thus we embarked on an exploratory study whose principal objective was not only to describe religious renewal among Jews, but also to begin to understand how to think and talk about it by listening closely to those who have experienced it.
