 The present article seeks to further the current understanding of Jewish life in America by examining trends in Jewish identification over a relatively long span of time. Using the 1970 and the 1990 NJPS the author suggests that the process characterizing American Jewry are diverse and often complex. American Jewry is not proceeding in one clear path. While some expressions of Jewish identification have experienced significant decline, others sustained a fair amount of stability and have even been slightly strengthened.
