Jewish Religiosity: Ideological and Ritualistic Dimensions
Publication Date: January 1974
Publisher(s): Behrman House Publishers
Special Collection: Berman Jewish Policy Archive
Keywords: American Jews; Demography; Jewish identification
Coverage: Rhode Island
The data presented on the Jews of Providence, Rhode Island, provide insight into changing patterns of religiosity among American Jews. As with all small communities, Providence tends toward consensus and therefore it does not exhibit the wide variation in Jewish religious practice encountered in larger communities. Yet, Providence has the advantage to be located in the area where the concentration of Jewish population is the highest in the country.
