Whatever Happened to the Jewish People?

By Steven M. Cohen, Jack Wertheimer

American Jewish Committee (AJC), June 2006

The authors find mounting evidence of a weakened identification among American Jews with their fellow Jews abroad, as well as a waning sense of communal responsibility at home. They review historical patterns of Jewish engagement and unity and explore changing patterns and the effects of attitudinal shifts including marital and social patterns, and ethnic identification. They assert that the decline of Jewish peoplehood is symptomatic of a decline of morale and of national self-respect.
