For many American Jews, Jewish identity is not synonymous with religious observance or affiliation with the Jewish community. Nonetheless, many individuals who are not institutionally or organizationally affiliated say that being Jewish is an important part of their lives and look for other avenues to express and strengthen their Jewish identity. This research report offers a comprehensive study of the relationship between Jewish identity and Jewish culture in the San Francisco Bay Area.
