In Every Tongue: The Racial & Ethnic Diversity of the Jewish People

By Gary A. Tobin, Diane Tobin, Scott Rubin, Lewis Gordon

Institute for Jewish and Community Research, 2005

The authors argue that American Jews are a multiracial people -- perhaps the most diverse people in history. 1.2 million (20 percent) of America's Jews are African-American, Asian-American, Latino, Sephardic (Spanish and Portuguese), Middle Eastern and mixed race, the authors explain. The authors discuss the results of over 200 personal interviews and focus groups, as well as original survey data, to support their claim and provide personal perspectives of Jews of color. Supplementary files are included: a press release for the book, and for the 4th Be'chol Lashon Think Tank, which was affiliated with the book.
