The American Jewish Community: Trends and Changes in Engagement and Perceptions

This report presents the findings of two surveys of American Jews conducted in 2019 and 2021. These surveys examined overall attitudes related to Jewish identity, community organizations and institutions, and Israel. They also explored current issues including the changing political landscape in both countries, the rise in antisemitism incidents in the United States, and the COVID-19 pandemic which spread in the United States shortly after the first survey was conducted.

The 2021 survey adopted an approach different from previous studies of the Jewish community. It was conducted only among those who had participated in the 2019 survey. This kind of recontact research allowed us to look under the surface at individual-level change and explore trends across the broader population. This is the first time, to our knowledge, that this recontact methodology has been used in survey research on American Jews.
