Modern Orthodoxy in America: Possibilities for a Movement under Siege

By William Helmreich, Reuel Shinnar

Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA), June 1, 1998

The author argues that the popular belief that Modern Orthodoxy is on the verge of extinction is an exaggeration. Rather, he contends, Modern Orthodoxy has prospects for success, if effective leadership responds to the challenge. The author defines Modern Orthodoxy, discusses the history of its eclipse and the rise of right-wing Orthodoxy, and makes recommendations for how Modern Orthodoxy can survive.
