The purpose of this study is to compare the elderly Jewish communities of two South Florida counties with the elderly Jewish population of Israel, on a series of demographic, socioeconomic, and "Jewishness" factors. The similarities between the Jewish elderly populations of South Florida and Israel are shown to be more pronounced with increasing age.
