Summary

The American Jewish community is riddled with& ; doubts about the viability of the institutions that well& ; served the Jewish community of the twentieth century.& ; Synagogues, federations and Jewish membership organizations& ; have yet to figure out how to meet the changing& ; interests and needs of the next generation.& ; In this challenging yet hopeful call for transformational& ; change, visionary leader Rabbi Sidney Schwarz& ; looks at the social norms that are shaping the habits& ; and lifestyles of younger American Jews and why the& ; next generation is so resistant to participation in the& ; institutions of Jewish communal life as they currently& ; exist. He sets out four guiding principles that can drive& ; a renaissance in Jewish life and gives evidence of how,& ; on the margins of the Jewish community, those principles& ; are already generating enthusiasm and engagement& ; from the very Millennials that the organized& ; Jewish community has yet to engage.& ; Contributors& 014;leading innovators from different& ; sectors of the Jewish community& 014;each use Rabbi& ; Schwarz& 019;s framework as& ; a springboard to set forth& ; their particular vision for& ; the future of their sector of& ; Jewish life and beyond.
