Secular Jews were drawn
from the local Workmen's Circle
and Jewish Parents Institute.
"They aren't religious, but
they still have a very strong
sense of who they are. They're
very involved with the commu-
nity. I think they consider them-
selves very actively Jewish, but
in a different way, certainly,
from the Orthodox," he said.
Dr. Rothko noted that indi-
viduals who regard themselves
middle-of-the-road are the most
likely to search for meaning and
wonder where they fit in.
"I found that the most obser-
vant Jews and the truly atheis-
tic Jews were freer from anxiety
than those Jews who were mod-
erately religious. The person in
the middle has a framework he
only partially accepts," he said.
"There is not the same sense of
conviction. Sometimes, they may
be beset by guilt and the knowl-
edge that they could do more.
They don't benefit from the same
type of certainty."
Dr. Rothko stressed that his
conclusions pertain only to the

communities targeted in the
study, and not the general pub-
lic.
Reared part Presbyterian and
part secular Jewish, Dr. Rothko
and his wife, Lori Cohen, belong
to a Conservative synagogue in
Ann Arbor. They keep a kosher
home, but Dr. Rothko does not
consider himself a religious Jew.

"It provides a
degree of certainty
in people's lives."

The topic of religion, howev-
er, has always fascinated him.
As an incentive for mailing back
the questionnaires, Dr. Rothko
promised to donate $5 per re-
sponse to charities within each
of the three different communi-
ties. Monies raised for Jewish
causes included $210 for Yad
Ezra Kosher Food Pantry, $340
for Mazon and $175 for Work-
men's Circle. ❑
