American Jewry's Future as Seen Fifty Years Ago and Now

By Steven Bayme

Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA), September 2009

The author argues that the twenty-first century has challenged if not shattered much of the prevailing optimism about the American Jewish future. Nevertheless, the United States continues to be the Diaspora society most welcoming of Jews and receptive to Jewish participation. He states that Jewish renewal coexists alongside a larger narrative of Jewish assimilation and that Jewish political influence may well have peaked, and its continuation should not be taken for granted.
