Jewish leaders have been fretting for years over the threat assimilation poses to the American Jewish community. Psychologist Samuel Osherson looks behind the statistics and finds that Jewish values and practice are alive and well among the uncounted. All over this country, in big cities and small towns, intermarried, unaffiliated, and traditionally unobservant Jews are redefining their faith and returning in their own way to Judaism.

In a pioneering psychological analysis, Osherson looks at the parental and authority issues that drove many Jews away; and he describes the
circumstances that bring them back to a different form of Jewish practice-more open to other traditions, more accepting of imperfections in education and belief.
This is another chapter in the great story of the Jewish people, and a handbook for Jewish seekers and strivers who want to rebuild the bridges to their religious and cultural heritage.
