This is an ethnographic analysis of a Conservative Jewish synagogue in a southern New England suburb. Martin Laskin's work follows the participant-observer model and, at the same time, it is a contribution to the field as a study of a "mainstream" Jewish congregation with a pluralistic orientation. His account of the ways in which his congregation seeks to minister to members with a wide variety of interests and concerns indicates that Conservative Judaism faces the same set of pressures from the secular world as mainstrem Christian bodies, and uses similar strategies of respond. This book may provide a guide for professionals who are training to serve as staff in Conservative synagogues. Martin offers a realistic depiction of the range of participation spiritual leaders can expect from their congregation.
