Changing Conceptions of Political Life and Their Implications for American Judaism

By Charles S. Liebman

Bar-Ilan University Press, 1981

The author argues that dramatic changes have occurred among Jews with enormous potential consequence for the structure of American Jewish life. He contends that national Jewish communal leaders and young American Jews have radically different perceptions of reality. These differences, he argues, characterize two major age and generational groupings which compromise American Jewry. The author generalizes the differences between first and second generation American Jews on one hand, and third generation American Jews on the other.
