Religion, Spirituality and the Future of American Judaism

By Chaim I. Waxman

KTAV Publishing House, Inc., Yeshiva University Press, 2005

The author explains that rising spirituality among American baby-boomers does not necessarily translate to a rise in religiosity. He discusses the religious and spiritual differences between American Reconstructionist, Reform, Conservative and Orthodox Jewry. Citing survey data, the author looks at how spirituality and religiosity have changed over time within the various denominations.
