This study attempts to determine the effects of an intensive Jewish secondary school education on later adult Jewish lifestyles as reflected in behavior, attitudes and values, based on a survey of Jews in Philadelphia, PA, one group of which graduated from Jewish day school, and one group of which had not. The author asserts that this study indicated that the groups differed not only in behavior, attitudes and values, but also in their perceptions of themselves as Jews.
