Religion and the Public Square: Attitudes of American Jews in Comparative Perspective

By Steven M. Cohen

Center for Jewish Community Studies, 1999

American Jews have long placed church-state issues near the top of their political and community relations agenda. How America defines the place of religion and how it understands the status of Christianity and other faiths has obvious direct bearing on how Jews and Judaism fare in the larger society. This study examines the points of view expressed by non-Jews, the Jewish public, and Jewish leaders on separation and accomodation through the lens of contemporary issues.
