Economic Influences on Judaism in America

By Carmel U. Chiswick

Association for Jewish Studies (AJS), Fall 2009

The author argues that since Judaism must compete for resources with other forms of consumption, it is an economic good and is subject to the laws of economics. She explores potential avenues of inquiry for scholars to pursue on this theme, including the price of being Jewish in America, the effects of wages, economics of religious education, and the relationship between the fields of religion and economics in general.
