Income and Involvement in the Jewish Community: Do Indentity, Marital Status, or a Child in the House Matter?

By J. Alan Winter

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1991

The relationship between family income and each of two forms of Jewish involvement - synagogue membership and federated campaign contributions - is examined, as is the influence of Jewish identity, marital status, and the presence of a child aged 18 or under in the household. Income and identity are found to be important predictors of involvement, whereas surprisingly, marital status and the presence of a child aged 18 or under are not particularly good predictors of involvement.
