The Israel Visit and Jewish Identification

By David Mittelberg

American Jewish Committee (AJC), 1994

This study analyzes the relationship between visiting Israel and indices of Jewish identification and continuity, using data from the 1990 NJPS. It compares the social and demographic profiles of respondents who have never been to Israel, who have visited once, and who visit frequently; suggests the consequences of these differences for Jewish continuity; and makes practical policy suggestions for Jewish communal leadership concerned with enhancing Jewish continuity in North America.
