Review of the Year (2001) in the United States: Jewish Communal Affairs

By Lawrence Grossman

American Jewish Committee (AJC), Jewish Publication Society (JPS), 2001

The emphasis on individual self-fulfillment that pervaded American society in the 1990s continued in 2000, bringing a reevaluation off the question of Jewish continuity. Attracting and keeping young Jews' allegiance became more difficult. Internal Jewish debates over identity were projected into the national arena with the addition of Senator Joseph Lieberman of Connecticut to the presidential ticket. For the first time in a long time, denominational issues were absent from the American Jewish agenda. The American Jewish community was split over Israel's peace policies.
