Orthodoxy and Jewish Federations: Reflections from "Out-of-Town"
Through research based on books and personal interviews with Federation and Orthodox lay and professional leaders from various communities, the author addresses the evolving relationship between Jewish Federations and the Orthodox community and whether this change has been for the better or for the worse. He examines Federations over the last sixty years, post-World War II American Orthodoxy, and larger trends in philanthropy, religious affiliation, and sources of Jewish identity to argue that the relationship between Federation and American Orthodoxy differs among communities and while some trends will inevitably emerge, they should not be viewed as having unlimited generalizability or predictive force.
