ly to belong to a synagogue;
just 27.5 percent of re-
spondents that age said they
do.
The age groups with the
highest affiliation rate are
the youngest and oldest
adults; just over 45 percent
of Jews 18-24 and 75 and
over currently belong to a
synagogue.
Forty-two to 45 percent of
Jews between ages 45 and 74
belong.
Synagogue affiliation is at
its very highest in families
with children ages 10-13 and
14-17 at home — 73 percent
of respondents with at least
two children in that age
range affiliate.
Just under half of re-
spondents with a child age
10 to 13 at home — 49.5 per-
cent — said they belong to a
synagogue, despite the wide-
spread notion that families
with bar-mitzvah-age chil-
dren are more likely to
belong so that their children
will prepare for the life-cycle
event.
"A growing number of kids
don't get any Jewish edu-
cation," said Mr. Tobin.
"The notion that it's univer-
sal is just not true, especially
among mixed marrieds."

Jerusalem (JTA) — The
fervently Orthodox Sephar-
dic Shas party announced
plans this week to rejoin
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Rabin's government after
Passover.
Shas leader Aryeh Deri
said that his party's return,
after a five-month absence,
was made possible by the
government's decision to
support legislation to con-
tinue the present ban on im-
porting non-kosher meat,
even after the industry is
privatized.
The bill, which amends a
quasi-constitutional law pro-
tecting occupational
freedom, easily passed its in-
itial Knesset vote by a vote
of 82-11, after the Labor Par-
ty threw its support behind
it.
Labor's left-wing coalition
partner, Meretz, strongly
opposed the bill. It was sup-
ported by all the religious
parties and many traditional
or observant members of the
Likud opposition.
Mr. Deri said that the
peace process, too, was a fac-
tor in Shas' decision to move
slowly back into the coali-
tion fold.
He said his party would re-
join the government after
the Knesset's Passover
recess "if nothing untoward
happens in the peace talks
till then." Cl

agogue affiliation increases
as educational levels do.
While 34.5 percent of Jews
who have no more than a
high school education
belong, 36 percent of those
with some undergraduate
college experience but not a
bachelor's degree belong,
and more than 45 percent of
Jews with graduate degrees
do.
Synagogue affiliation also
rises as along with income
levels.
Just 30.5 percent of re-
spondents with incomes
between $30,000 and
$40,000 belong, but nearly
half the respondents with a
household income of over
$80,000, 49 percent, af-
filiate.
Dropout rates are highest
among those with household
incomes between $20,000
and $40,000.

has a strong correlation to
the denomination of the
household.
Orthodox Jews are much
more likely to belong to a
synagogue than Reform
Jews — 65 percent as oppos-
ed to 40 percent.
Just over half, 52 percent,
of Jews who identify them-
selves as Conservative
belong to a synagogue.
Still, more than one-third
of Orthodox Jews do not
belong to a shul.
And Reform Jews have the
highest rate of respondents
who describe themselves as
"synagogue dropouts" — 38
percent, compared to 10 per-
cent of Orthodox and 29 per-
cent of Conservative Jews.
About 13 percent of re-
spondents who described
themselves as "just Jewish"
or "secular" belong to syn-
agogues.

Population Survey did not
