American Jewry: Present and Future

By Manfred Gerstenfeld

American Jewish Committee (AJC), Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA), 2010

The condition and comfort level of Jews are influenced to a great extent by society at large. Hence, to assess the future of American Jewry attention must also be given to potentially major changes in the social, political, and economic environment in the United States. With this comes the question of the future of America's status in the world. Indeed, how the current administration and the following ones will modify the United States' role as the single superpower is yet to emerge. One of the most immediate questions is whether the future withdrawals from Iraq and Afghanistan will be viewed as defeats. Even if such an analysis of the future can only be superficial, it can be helpful.
