By Sylvia Barack Fishman

Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1981

The objective of this paper is to explore one of the mechanisms involved in American Jewish fertility that has not yet been examined in any depth: contraceptive usage. The author asks the following key questions in this article: what are the variations in the type of contraception used among American women? And to what extent are differences between Jewish and non-Jewish contraceptive usage related to socio-economic factors or to other uniquely Jewish characteristics?
