It seems difficult to have a conversation about God and religion these days without hearing the word "spirituality." More and more people have come to define themselves as spiritual, while fewer and fewer people self-identify as religious. For those who once considered themselves religious, many now have come to denote themselves as "spiritual and religious." Polls taken by Gallup and USA Today show that the number of people who have said they are both spiritual and religious rose from just 6 percent of the population in 1999, to 47 percent of the population in 2009. This spiritual phenomenon has captivated synagogue and church goers alike.
