Basing their conclusions on a larger study of Conservative synagogues and their members, the authors examine the religious beliefs of Conservative Jewish teenagers as compared to the beliefs of their parents. They identify a generation gap in three basic areas: group relations, expressed through fear of anti-Semitism (the younger generation is less fearful); religious integrity, particularly in views on intermarriage (of which the younger generation is much more accepting); and belief in God (the younger generation is more likely to believe in God).
