The purpose of this qualitative study was to explore the intersection of culture and religion in Reform Jewish families. Using symbolic interactionism and identity theory as frameworks, the following research question guided this study: How is culture and religion constructed in Reform Jewish families? Three families and three successive generations within each family (n=12) participated in three focus groups, individual interviews, and participant observations as data collection methods. Analysis within a grounded theory approach indicates that individual and family experiences placed the value of family traditions and practices as an important component in how culture and religion is constructed in Reform Jewish families. Family traditions and practices helped to frame cultural and religious contexts for participants. They provided the opportunity to create social networks that resulted in social connectedness to culture and religion. Families also valued and provided opportunities for choice across generations. Participants consistently endorsed changing or altering a concept in their life if it did not meet their needs
