Here Professor DellaPergola provides thoughts and recommendations on how to achieve the most usefulness from the findings of the Jewish Peoplehood Index and how to continue to track the trends and realities of Jewish peoplehood. While some of the suggestions are related to the technical process of surveying the Jewish community at large, such as
determining the most effective statistical and survey tools, other recommendations are related to how one views the subject matter: that Israel should be examined as another Jewish community, and that a community should be viewed as a collective in order to include all types of individuals and affiliations.
