This piece explores the concepts of Jewish identity and Jewish identification in terms of their meaning and existing research that explores this area. The author references Victor Sanuaâ??s research, which highlights patterns of identification as related to such factors as charitable contributions, religion observances and oneâ??s religious education. The author also affirms that practitioners are concerned with the development of identity and its expression in the form of religio-ethnic identification as a process that continues throughout life. The piece concludes by asserting that more clarity is needed to understand viable life patterns, which may include patterns of possible Jewish identity conveyed through meaningful and diverse acts of Jewish identification.
