Secularity Among Conservative Jews

By Paul Ritterband

Jewish Theological Seminary of America (JTS) Press, 1997

Basing his conclusions on a larger study of Conservative synagogues and their members, the author examines secularity among Conservative Jews. North American Jews show the highest level of secularity of any ethnic or religio-ethnic group of European origin, he notes, but when it comes to communal solidarity and Jewish peoplehood, Jews show high levels of affiliation and concern.
