Martin Kraar, CJF exec-
utive vice president, said in
a statement that the fin-
dings mean that "Jewish
Federations will be better
equipped to plan for the de-
velopment of services and
facilities that are vital to the
continued growth of Jewish
life."
"You cannot plan intel-
ligent community policy
without knowing the facts,"
agreed AJCommittee's
Singer. "This puts us in a
stronger position."
For example, the survey
found that the Jewish
population, like the Ameri-
can population at large, is
getting older.
While 21 percent of Jews
in this country are under 18
years of age, 18 percent are
at least 65 years old, the
study found.
"More of today's older peo-
ple are the children of immi-
grant parents, who had
larger families. They, in
turn, had smaller ones," said
Mr. Lazerwitz. "People are
also living longer."
This will lead to a closer
look at community child care
and elderly care options,
pointed out Steven Cohen,
professor of sociology at
Queens College.
The graying of American
Jewry will also impact
resource allocation, or where
communities will decide to
spend more of their money.
"Will they put money into
homes for the aged, or into
where the future rests, into
education for the young?"
asked Mr. Singer. "The issue
of proportions becomes very
significant."
Other findings included
the fact that 27 percent of
Jewish adults have visited
Israel, a significantly higher
percentage than had visited
in 1970, when it was 16 per-
cent, according to Mr.
Cohen.
Seventy-eight percent of
Jewish adults have received
some Jewish education at
some time in their lives, the
study said, and 735,000
adults, or some 15 percent,
have participated in adult
education in the past year.
Also, 77 percent of Jewish
households contributed to
charity in 1989, although
only half of them gave to
Jewish charities.
The entire survey was
overseen by the CJF Na-
tional Technical Advisory
Committee on the Jewish
Population Study headed by
Dr. Sidney Goldstein, pro-
fessor of sociology at Brown
University, and Joseph
Waksberg, former associate
director of the U.S. Bureau
of the Census.
