Attitudes toward separation-accommodation are related to support for (or opposition to) the expression of religion in public life. Within each of the three samples, church-state separationists were more likely than accommodationists to oppose expanded religious influence in society and the involvement of churches and church leaders in political affairs. The changes found in this study, coupled with those reported in the first study, suggest a small but noticeable shift toward more accommodationism within the Jewish public.
