The Relationship Between the Jewish Political Tradition and Jewish Civil Religion in the United States

By Deborah Dash Moore

Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA), Spring 1990

The author explores some facets of the relationship between the Jewish political tradition, as articulated in the writings of Daniel Elazar and his associates, and Jewish civil religion in the United States. American Jews have continued to structure their civil religious consensus and organizational life according to Jewish tenets, the author observes, but when conflict occurs between historical Jewish responses and American values, Jewish civil religion tends to accomodate to the American.
