This chapter shows that by the 19th century, most Jews practiced an individualistic religiosity, influenced by their family, location, community, or nation and even by their own life cycles. Belonging to a Jewish family and to Jewish organizational life remained a linchpin of Judaism as Jews fashioned a comfort zone somewhere between tradition and Bildung, between conformity to hallowed customs and openness to new forms of Jewish life.
