The authors of this article analyzed diversity in among the New York Jewish population, which they view as emblematic of the greater Jewish population worldwide. These trends present a challenge to he social bases for coherence and communality, community, and collectivity. However, they also present opportunities, as the multiplicity of cultures can be seen as a valuable resource for community.
