In the following Sh'ma Roundtable, rabbinic leaders of the various movements as well as scholars of American Jewry speculate about the challenges and opportunities ahead for synagogues. They brought a thirst for honest, candid conversation as they pondered whether the synagogue is "beleaguered" and how American Jewry can work together beyond institutional boundaries to embolden and rethink a pillar of communal and spiritual life.
