This study finds that as the liberal Jewish community empowers its women, its men appear to be losing interest in their Jewishness. Jewish males, from school age through the adult years, have fewer connections with Jews and Judaism than their female counterparts. This lack of male interest shows up not only at home, with the observance of domestic Judaic rituals, but also in public religious leadership as well.
