American Judaism: Changing Patterns in Denominational Self-Definition

By Arnold Eisen

Studies in Contemporary Jewry, 1992

Transformations in the religious options among which American Jews may choose will be examined here via a careful reading of prayer books, statements of principles, and essays by representative figures of the major denominations. Such an analysis can shed light on the changed self-presentation of the movements and the changed self-understanding of their elites and can also serve as a basis for evaluation of the altered religious landscape of American Jews.
