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.
