Chapter Summary

This chapter points out to four transformations affecting American Jewry in the 21st century. Next, it focuses on three areas of uncertainty concerning the community's future. As we look ahead into the 21st century, these are some of the challenges that the Jewish community confronts. The first transformation that impacts Jewish life in the United States is a demographic one. The second important transformation affecting American Jews is the likelihood that in the 21st century, American Jewry will shrink in significance both nationally and internationally. The third transformation is related to the change that in the 21st century, Jews, especially American Jews, will view the Diaspora differently from how they view it today. The fourth transformation concerns the changing nature of general American religious life, and its impact upon Judaism and Jewish life.
