Socio-Ideological Differentiation in the U.S. Jewish Population

By Fred Massarik

Avraham Harman Institute of Contemporary Jewry, 1977

The concept of 'Socio-Ideological type' provides a useful framework for systematic analysis of underlying Jewish population characteristics and emerging trends. Significant relationships between designated socio-ideological types and various demographic characteristics have been previously reported. The question now arises whether 'socio-ideological type' analysis also facilitates systematic differentiations relating to the quality of Jewish affiliation and with regard to 'subjective' elements, such as attitudes toward Jewishness, Israel and the non-Jewish environment. This paper addresses several issues associated with this inquiry.
