Tradition, Judaism, and the Jewish Religion in Contemporary Israeli Society

By Charles S. Liebman

Jewish Theological Seminary of America (JTS) Press, 1992

The author argues that while tradition, Judaism, and the Jewish religion existed as discernible conceptions in the period of the "yishuv," they no longer do in contemporary Israeli society. However, if they do, the distinctions are less pronounced and exist among a small segment of the population than in the past. He conveys this change by distinguishing the three concepts from one another and their respective capacities for transformation from one generation to the next.
