Similarities and Dissimilarities in National and Community Surveys: The Case of American Jews

By Uzi Rebhun

Avraham Harman Institute of Contemporary Jewry, 1993

This study reports on two independent empirical research-works on American Jews. In the first study, combined data from local surveys of the Jewish communities in Los Angeles (1979), Philadelphia (1983) and Boston (1985) allowed for intercommunity comparisons. In the second study nation-wide data from the 1970 and the 1990 NJPS were merged and compared. Both researches examined the mutual relationship of migration behaviors and patterns of Jewish identification. These two studies allow a further comparison to be made between local and national studies.
