By Steven M. Cohen, J. Shawn Landres, Elie Kaunfer, Michelle Shain

Mechon Hadar, Synagogue 3000, November 2007

This study focuses upon the people who participate in "emergent sacred communities" / "spiritual communities" / "independent minyanim," asking: What are their demographic characteristics, their Jewish backgrounds, and their inclinations? How do they differ from "regular" congregants? Why and how do they participate in these newly formed communities? And, by extension, what are they seeking in these communities that they have not found in conventional congregations?
