PEW RESEARCH CENTER STUDY DISCUSSION

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 16TH 7PM VIA ZOOM


 

In 2020, the Pew Research Center interviewed Americans and developed a profile of the American Jewish Population. Who are the American Jews, what are they all about, and how have they been changing since Pew’s 2013 Study of the American Jewish Population? The 248 page report was released in May 2021. We are fortunate to have in our community the perfect tour guide to take us through the highlights of these 248 pages in one evening.
