The Synagogue in Greater Philadelphia: Recent Past, Present and Future

By Aaron Landes, Dov Aaron Brisman, Bernard Frank, Robert Layman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 2002

This article examines contemporary Jewish religious life and its future in the context of Greater Philadelphia's Jewry's long history. It concentrates on the last three decades and analyzes trends that may hint at the future. Distinguished rabbinic leaders from each of the four major movements describe, in historical order, their movements from within. My observations with regard to the recent past, the present, and the future of synagogue life in Greater Philadelphia follow their contributions.
