In: Sociology of Religion 67/4, 439-463.This paper uses the 2000-01 NJPS to explore potential independent connections between a variety of childhood and adolescent Jewish antecedents and subsequent 'success' in the adult secular world. The focus is on explaining gender differentials in these over-time connections and in testing hypotheses suggestive of greater adult success for those who followed 'moderate' behavioral religious pathways.
