From Ethnic to Spiritual: A Tale of Four Generations

By Lawrence A. Hoffman

Synagogue 3000, 1995

The author explores the American Jewish experience through the lens of four generations roughly corresponding to those who left their mark in the 1870s, the 1910s, the 1950s and the 1990s. The author outlines major themes of these generations, respectively, as (1) founding; (2) protecting peoplehood; (3) suburbs and survival; and (4) seeking spirituality.
