The Evolving Involvement of American Jews

By Bethamie Horowitz

Forward Association, March 11, 2005

The author analyzes the results of the National Jewish Population Survey , which demonstrate that the level of people's Jewish involvement fluctuates throughout their lives. The author distinguishes two groups: The Stayers, whose patterns have not shifted much from the way they were raised, and the Movers, who have moved away from their earlier patterns. The author then breaks down the complexities in these two groups and asserts that people now feel as though they can choose how they would like to be Jewish.
