New Conceptions of Community

By Shoshana Gelfand, Keith Kahn-Harris, Jonathan Boyd, Raphael Zarum, Matt Plen, Joseph Finlay, Judith Williams

Institute for Jewish Policy Research (JPR), February 22, 2010

For over a year, the Institute for Jewish Policy Research has been engaged in a conversation involving a small number of the UK's most insightful practitioners and thinkers. The participants in that conversation were drawn from as many sections of the Jewish community as possible, and were invited because of their direct involvement in creating a particularly interesting version of Jewish community, their capacity to think reflectively, and their willingness to engage constructively and respectfully in dialogue with others. In this report they discuss a wide range of topics, including Jewish Conceptions of Community; Post-denominational communities; how emerging adults are teaching us new conceptions of community; and how the Internet may be changing the face of Jewish life.

Topic: Political Behavior, Generational Issues, Technology, Jewish Text, Religious Denominations, Politics, Community Building
