The authors assert that American Jewish males are systemically alienated within the liberal wings of American Judaism, beginning at boyhood and affecting every aspect of Jewish life. They contend that research and policy planning efforts should be placed in the broader American context, which profoundly influences American Jews. They argue that gender imbalance is not a foregone conclusion -- that men need not be distant from Jewishness.
