The Pew Research Center’s “Portrait of Jewish Americans” study has sparked intense debate within the Jewish community.

Rabbi Shira Stutman leads a conversation about the challenges and opportunities posed by the survey findings as they pertain to millennial Jews. Panelists include Alan Cooperman, Deputy Director of Pew’s Religion & Public Life Project; Jeffrey Goldberg, Bloomberg View columnist; Julie Finkelstein, Program Director of Slingshot; and Bethamie Horowitz, a socio-psychologist and Research Assistant Professor of Jewish Education at NYU Steinhardt School of Education.

The Pew Research Center shared with us some of the survey questions it used and allowed Sixth & I to conduct its own unofficial survey. The results, which offer an informal picture of what Jewish identity means within our local community, can be seen here.

Co-sponsored with the Jewish Federation of Greater Washington and Pew Research Center
