Divorce and the Jewish Child

By Thomas J. Cottle

American Jewish Committee (AJC), 1981

This study was commissioned to study the effects of the increasing divorce rate on the Jewishness of the children and particularly asked about religious instruction, general commitment to Judaism and the role of Jewish institutions. The author reported the results of in-depth interviews in a series of family profiles, as well as conclusions. He concludes that the impact on the children is mixed, ranging from disengagement from Judaism to increased involvement and identification with Judaism.
