This paper is based upon a monograph in preparation which draws upon data on the Jewish family from almost every country where 5000 or more Jews reside. Social work, sociological and Jewish demographic sources were reviewed from North and South America, Western and Eastern Europe, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia and, of course, Israel as a source for the analysis.
