Contact: The Journal of the Jewish Life Network / Steinhardt Foundation -- Jewish Movements and the Jewish Future

By David Gedzelman, Eli Valley, Robert P. Aronson, Michael H. Steinhardt, Irving ("Yitz") Greenberg

Steinhardt Foundation for Jewish Life, Fall 2003

This issue of Contact explores recent Jewish movements that have found success in America, and considers a potential future movement that might stimulate American Jewry towards renewed commitment. Michael H. Steinhardt and Rabbi Yitz Greenberg discuss the possibilities and challenges of a new Jewish movement. Rabbi David Gedzelman suggests ways an American Jewish movement might relate to both the idea of Jewish peoplehood and to the culture of America. Robert P. Aronson speaks of the importance of attracting and retaining a cadre of highly-trained Jewish professionals that will form the backbone of any future movement. Articles by Sue Fishkoff, Barry W. Holtz and Shaul Kelner analyze the attributes that have made several recent Jewish movements successful.
