This paper seeks to examine the community involvement of Jewish women by assessing sociodemographic differentials in organizational membership and volunteer activity of Jewish women living in Rhode Island in 1987. Special attention will be given to those factors that have changed most dramatically for women in recent decades--labor force status and number of young children at home.
