This report uses data from the NJPS 2000-01 to examine who volunteers for Jewish and non-Jewish organizations and who has the highest relative likelihood of engaging in Jewish rather than non-Jewish volunteerism. More specifically, it looks at how Jewish and non-Jewish volunteerism vary by critical demographic factors and Jewish connections.
