Publication Date: September 1990

Keywords: Jewish identity; Demography; American Jews
The purpose of this report is to inform the decisions of policy-makers and practitioners who are working to strengthen Jewish identity. For the most part, authors believe the Detroit data lend support for the "enrichment of the moderately involved" strategy in its efforts to deepen and broaden Jewish identity. In addition to providing a basis for an overall strategy for the community, the report presents an analysis of a number of specific dimensions of Jewish identity: the impact of age and family life cycle; religious denomination; the impact of income; intermarriage; Israel; and Jewish schooling.
