As Orthodox Jewry in the United States grows in numbers and intensity, the movement is moving to the religious right, especially among the young. In his new book, Prof. Heilman explores the struggle for contemporary Orthodoxy to define itself in the midst of modern secular life and technology. He focuses in particular on the contest between haredi Orthodoxy and modern Orthodoxy. Samuel Heilman is Distinguished Professor of Sociology & Jewish Studies at the City University of New York, teaches at Queens College, and is author of several award-winning books. (lampbane)
