New Identities and Connections

By Adina Newberg

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), May 2006

An Israeli living in the U.S., the author states that secular Israelis have begun to ask deep existential questions about their lives and why and how they live in a country where they do not feel connected to the rich inheritance of the formational sources and values. Like secular Israelis, American non-Orthodox Jews are seeking ways to reconnect with Judaism while upholding their American 21st-century sensibilities. This points to new directions for creating a common vision fruitfully collaborating in making meaning and exploring our common heritage.
