The Unaffiliated Jew


edited by Renee Kogel and Bonnie Cousens

The first Colloquium sponsored by the International Institute for Secular Humanistic Judaism, Colloquium ’95 gathered intellectuals, writers, artists, professors and community leaders to discuss a crucial issue for Jewish survival – “The Unaffiliated Jew,” which in the United States has consistently been half of the American Jewish population. Who are unaffiliated Jews? What have they not found satisfying about the organized Jewish community? And what can we offer them in terms of reasons to be Jewish and community connections for the 21st Century?
