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.
