A Portrait of Israeli Jews: Beliefs, Observance, and Values of Israeli Jews, 2009
In the first half of 2009, the Guttman Center for Surveys of the Israel Democracy Institute was commissioned by AVI CHAI–Israel to conduct a survey of the Jewish profile of Israeli society, with regard to religiosity, belief, values, and tradition and practices. The survey also related to Jewish Israelis’ attitudes toward religion, the state, and public life, relations between different sectors of Israeli Jewish society, and relations between Israeli Jews and Diaspora Jewry.
This survey is a sequel to two earlier studies carried out by the Guttman Center in 1991 and 1999. Taken together, the three surveys present a unique continuum of Jewish religiosity and tradition in Israel. The return to the “field,” using similar questionnaires, permits a comparison of the different periods and a diagnosis of the trends in religious observance over the past two decades.
The present report offers findings of the 2009 study, which relate to the entire adult Israeli Jewish population and the intermediate hues that mark its various sectors. The report also refers to the
most prominent trends of the past two decades.
