dc.description.abstract With delicious irony, modern Jews' escape from religious tradition has led to a Renaissance of religious sentiment. Today' s spirituality is, in part, the product of a rebellion against the way that Judaism has been practiced and conveyed in American synagogues, homes, and schools. The popular usage of the word conveys this. "Spirituality" connotes a highly individualized, uncharted, and not yet completed quest in which the individual's immediate feelings are of greater importance than the observance of halachah and inherited norms. Religion. on the other hand, signifies a fixed heritage that is packaged for transmittal from one generation to the next. en
