Divorce in the Jewish Community: The Impact of Jewish Commitment

By Jay Brodbar-Nemzer

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), December 1984

This article analyzes the data in the 1981 Greater New York Population Study. These data suggest that those Jews who have the least commitment and involvement are at the greatest risk to divorce. This group provides the most difficult challenge. Although the wholesale return to traditional Judaism among American Jewry is unlikely, the values and principles at the basis of traditional Judaism still may serve as a valuable resource for those desiring to promote family stability and integrity. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.61 no.2, Winter 1984.
