About this book

Nondenominational Judaism collects essays from faculty, administrators, and alumni from the Academy for Jewish Religion California and other institutions engaged in pluralistic, nondenominational, and transdenominational Jewish professional and higher education.

Contributors were asked to share personal, academic, and/or philosophical reflections on their experiences learning, teaching, administrating, and leading in pluralistic Jewish settings; the unique roles of pluralism vis-à-vis denominational models; the benefits and challenges of nondenominational Jewish education; and related themes of their choosing.

Their eclectic understandings and approaches are a testament to the diversity and inclusivity of Judaism beyond denominational barriers, and, it is hoped, a contribution to larger conversations concerning changing attitudes and affiliations of twenty-first-century American Jews.
