Gender Gap, The: A Congregational Guide for Beginning the Conversation about Men's Involvement in Synagogue Life
Studies report decreased involvement in Jewish communal life on the part of both men and boys. Anecdotal information backs up this trend. There are often more women than men at services, more girls than boys in youth groups, and more women than men on the synagogue boards. What is behind these numbers and why? This book presents ideas, reflective essays, and program ideas meant to start the conversation in the synagogue about this phenomenon. There are no definite answers here, rather a choice to test some ideas and begin a dialogue.
