This chapter focuses on competing and comparative perspectives on the study of Jewish identity in the U.S. It elaborates on sociologist Steven M. Cohen's analysis of the various perspectives regarding the quality of Jewish survival and proposes the addition of the authenticity and boundaries the dimensions to the study of Jewish identity. It analyzes how competing perspectives on survival, authenticity, and boundaries play out on a number of different levels of Jewish space and offers suggestions on how to improve intersectional analysis of Jewish identity in a cross-cultural manner.

Keywords:   Jewish identity, United States, Steven M. Cohen, Jewish survival, authenticity, boundaries, intersectional analysis
