Death Penalty Disconnect: American Jews and Their Communal Organizations

By Lawrence Rubin

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), October 2002

Jewish organizations have consistently spoken out against the death penalty, whereas American Jews, like Americans generally, have regularly supported it. The author provides details and statistics on this comparison.
