Morris Lichtenstein viewed Jewish Science as a means to turn American Jews away from Christian Science while revitalizing their spiritual lives. He assumed leadership of the Society of Applied Judaism which he transformed into a society that disseminated his own ideas. He sought to form a movement that promoted an understanding of Judaism as a personal and practical religion concerned with the physical and spiritual well-being of American Jews.
