The article delineates the emerging complex of values, ideas, and preferences through which America's Jews appear to be making their way into the next century. The author analyses who will be America's Jews a generation from now? How many Jews will there be? What will be their manner of communal and religious organization? In what ways will they express themselves as Jews? What relationships will they have to historical trends of Judaism and to each other as sub-groups?
