Sources of Jewish Charitable Giving: Incentives and Barriers

By Arnold Dashefsky

Transaction Publishers, 1990

Surveys have not revealed in any great detail the motivations, both incentives and barriers for the philanthropic behavior of Jews. The research reported in this chapter begins to fill that gap by examining the issue within the normative context of helping behavior; i.e., the extent to which norms such as those of social responsibility or reciprocity are operating. Adherence to these norms is indicative of individuals' relationships to their society and of their support for whatever sense of moral order exists in their society. The study is based upon a purposive sample of 72 persons.
