In this study of the Kansas City metropolitan area in Missouri, the author provides demographic data on a variety of areas including home ownership, synagogue/temple membership, occupation and secular education. The author finds that the Kansas City Jewish population has one of the highest number of self-employed people in any Jewish community in the U.S. The author also finds that a significant number portion of the community have adopted some secularized aspects of Christians holidays. In addition, the author finds that the intermarriage rate in Kansas City is slightly higher than in Washington, D.C. which has one of the largest intermarried communities in the U.S. The author asserts that this data can be useful for long-term planning to deal with the variety of changes occurring within Kansas Cityâ??s Jewish community.
