Future of Faith in America: Judaism

As the recent Pew Research report shows, religious beliefs, behaviors, and affiliations are in transition, and none more than those associated with Judaism. Jewish communities are struggling with their political associations with the State of Israel, with the loss of identity through intermarriage, and with a growing agnosticism about the spiritual relevance of Torah and tradition.

Articles discuss Jewish heritage and the fading of Holocaust trauma, the internal conflict generated by the State of Israel, the surprising growth of Orthodox Judaism, and the hope of a revitalized Judaism that unites with Americans of all faiths in their search for social justice.

This topic is part of our summer symposium on the Future of Faith in America. For more resources visit our Future of Faith main page.
