In Contemporary Jewry 15, 4-25. A brief overview of NYJPS methodology and of some of the demographic findings regarding the New York Jewish population, with comparisons, where possible, to the national Jewish population are presented. Characteristics of New York Jewry are discussed that seem to offer a counterpoint to the current image of American Jewry, which holds that the American Jewish experience is one of continuing erosion over time.
