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.
