Social and Political Attitudes of British Jews

By Marlena Schmool, Antony Lerman, Stephen Miller

Institute for Jewish Policy Research (JPR), February 1996

This report explores attitudes and opinions of British Jews. The report finds that British Jews generally seem to fall to the left in terms of party political preference. More British Jews feel that racism in general worsened in the last five years than feel that anti-Semitism has worsened. The report also highlights the clear evidence of communal divisions between secular and progressive Jews and Orthodox Jews. The report finds that Jewish education plays a very small role in determining whether an individual maintains his or her Jewish identity, once religious background is allowed for.
