Collected essays by a preeminent authority on American Jewish history.
“The late Sklare, a Brandeis sociologist, made influential contributions to the study of American Jewish life. This collection of book chapters and articles from journals such as Commentary and Mainstream investigates American Jewry’s rituals, worship and attitudes toward Israel; perceives a loss of direction in conservative Judaism; addresses questions of Christian-Jewish relations; and examines the condition of urban Jews who are unattached to their communities."—Publishers Weekly
