By mapping out the costs of living Jewishly for a large Jewish community, the study described in this article brings cost out of the area of speculation and into the arena of public policy. It reveals a considerable range in those costs for families and individuals depending on affiliation pattems. Further research is needed on the interaction of values and economics and the special problems of middle-income Jewish families.
