By Steven M. Cohen, Manfred Gerstenfeld

American Jewish Committee (AJC), Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA), 2010

American Jewish identities have dramatically shifted over the past few decades, mainly resulting in a decreased sense of attachment to Jewish peoplehood and Israel. In this interview, Cohen draws on his sociological research on American Jewry to provide policy guidelines for American Jewish organizations to help strengthen the Jewish collective across all denominations.
