Why the American Jewish Community Needs Remix Judaism

In light of the recent data furnished by the Pew 2020 Report on the American Jewish community, many think that there is little future for American Judaism outside of the Orthodox. The Pew Report, although not entirely negative, still contains much cause for concern for those interested in a viable path for transmission of Jewish tradition outside of strict compliance with Jewish law. My presentation will focus on how a remixed approach to Jewish tradition can energize both religiously liberal Jews and Jewish organizations and facilitate continuity among a broader spectrum of the American Jewish community.
