Examines the labor supply behavior of American Jewish women in the context of the family, which may have contributed substantially to the evolution of the advantageous economic position of American Jews. The author suggests that efforts to develop high quality child care and kindergarten through grade 12 education for Jewish children may be crucial for the continued achievement of American Jews.
