As Jonathon Ament writes in "American Jewish Religious Denominations," a report based on the 2000-2001 National Jewish Population Survey (NJPS) for the United Jewish Communities, "Most American Jews identify as Jews through a denominational prism, unlike the experience in other large Jewish population centers such as Israel or the former Soviet Union (FSU).
The number of elderly Jews doubled between 1957 and 2000, reaching 1,072,000 in the 2000 National Jewish Population Survey.
The 2000-2001 American National Jewish Population Survey found that of all respondents, only 35% had visited Israel at least once, similar to the level found by surveys in the 1980s.
But the National Jewish Population Survey also found the Jewish community is growing more active, with increasing enrollment in Jewish day schools, strong emotional ties to Israel and observance of holidays even among less-connected Jews.
One of the dominant topics of discussion in American Jewish circles in recent years was the 1990 National Jewish Population Survey, its findings and implications.
When in 1990, a National Jewish Population Survey found that 52 percent of all American Jews had intermarried between 1981 and 1990, Jewish attitudes began to change.
The survey respondents were self-selected, and 81 percent who said they have children raise them as Jews, in comparison to the 33 percent reported in the National Jewish Population Survey 2000-2001.
It seems to me no coincidence that, in the decade between the 1990 and 2000 National Jewish Population Surveys, the number of Jews identifying as Conservative declined, while those identifying as Reform increased.
