The chapters proceed chronologically, beginning with the colonial period and progressing through the 1990s, and give readers a clear sense of the changes which have occurred over the years.
In Religion and State in the American Jewish Experience, Professors Sarna and Dalin recover divergent voices and opinions from the American Jewish community, and their research reveals that the community has never been limited to a single voice on issues of religion and state but has instead accommodated a rich variety of outlooks and positions. By gathering these individual voices into one comprehensive sourcebook, Sarna and Dalin offer a unique and well-documented look at a major aspect of the experience ofbeing Jewish in America.
