About the author

Her books include Fighting to Become Americans: Jews, Gender, and the Anxiety of Assimilation, and Women Remaking American Judaism.

Younger Jews have rejected the idea of ethnic solidarity, thus ensuring that the American Jewish future will look radically different from what has come before.
