While anti-Semitism remains an important social problem in contemporary America, no wide-ranging national study of anti-Semitism has been carried out since the 1960s. This report examines: 1) the perceived social standing of Jews compared to other ethnoreligious groups; 2) the images that people have of Jews; 3) social interactions between Jews and non-Jews in areas of friendship and intermarriage; 4) the perceived loyalty of Jews and the connection between anti-Israel and anti-Semitic attitudes.
