The New Secular Jew in Israel -- A Profile

By Meir Yoffe

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), May 2006

The author describes the relatively recent phenomenon whereby it is much more common to find Israeli Jews who are not observant but who nonetheless study Torah, keep traditions and involve themselves in religiosity and spirituality. This is increasingly reflected in the Israeli media, including Israeli singers and musicians, and has the potential to influence deep processes within Israeli society.
