This paper tries to advance our understanding of Moderately Affiliated Jews - those situated in the middle of the Jewish identity spectrum. How the Peripheral, the Moderately Affiliated and the Involved Jews differ? By their commitment to Judaic content and to Jewish continuity. These issues are explored using data based on a mailed-back questionnaire completed by 944 Jewish respondents nationwide in 1989.
