      Shaul Magid’s new book is groundbreaking. Building on David Hollinger’s concept of a “postethnic” America, Magid turns the postethnic lens on American Judaism to reveal an emergent form of the received tradition that represents a new interpretive turn. in Magid’s reading, Judaism is becoming postethnic, and that is a very good thing. The Central Conference of American Rabbis is the Reform Rabbinic leadership organization. The CCAR enriches and strengthens the Jewish community by fostering excellence in the Reform Rabbis who lead it, in whatever setting they serve, and through the resources .

      Religious Authority and the Formation of American Judaism (Oxford University Press ), historian Zev Eleff shows that synagogue life in the United States today, is not, to quote the. voluntary work of American women of other faiths, the leadership of the Federation understood their own purpose in specifically Jewish terms. "The increased power which has come to the modern American Jewess ought to be exercised in congregational life," stated the NFTS constitu-tion.7 Another motif, the future of Judaism, pervaded their ideology.

      Under Kaplan’s movement, Judaism expands its influence to the entire world, with the desire to contribute to the social and spiritual improvement of mankind. In his book, Judaism in Transition, Kaplan outlines five steps toward becoming a “this-worldly” cultural nation. The following exchange will focus on her book Judaism in Transition: How Economic Choices Shape Religious Tradition (Stanford, ). Part 1 can be found right here. Dear Professor Chiswick.
