Organizational Affiliation of American Jews: A Research Report

By Renae Cohen, Sherry Rosen

American Jewish Committee (AJC), 1992

The research was designed to contribute to a clearer definition of affiliation as well as to uncover more data about the behaviors and beliefs of Jews who affiliate and Jews who do not. Questions were asked about "overall affiliation" (defined as belonging either to a Jewish organization or to a synagogue or temple, volunteering time, attending meetings, paying dues, holding office, or contributing money or gifts to a Jewish organization) and specifically about membership in Jewish organization other than synagogues or temples. Data is based on a questionnaire mailed to a national sample of 1600 self-identified Jews.
