Reframing the Study of Contemporary American Jewish Identity

By Bethamie Horowitz

Association for the Social Scientific Study of Jewry (ASSJ), 2002

In this paper I describe the current state of knowledge about contemporary American Jewish identity and propose an agenda for future research. The basic frame within which American Jewish identity has been examined has changed. For many years the main line of inquiry has been "How Jewish are American Jews?". More recently the question has shifted to: "How are American Jews Jewish?"
