(p.65) CHAPTER 4 Religious Conflicts and Congruity
Jewish Communities on the Ohio River

Amy Hill Shevitz

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter discusses the different debates over the direction of American Judaism. These debates reflected the internal struggle to respond to modernity that had engaged Jews in the Western world for about a century. This was particularly sharpened by the unprecedented conditions of Jewish life in America. The Jews that lived in the large and small towns in the Ohio River Valley were in the eye of the storm. They played a critical role in formulating the response that became institutionalized in American Reform Judaism.
