In Contemporary Jewry 23, 196-219. At the Marshall Sklare Memorial Lecture the author focuses on what we should know and sketch out a research agenda that the next generation of scholars should pursue. The author explicitly argues we should not continue with outdated paradigms and limited research methods to understand how the Jewish community is organized, how Jews behave, and what they value.
