How Do you Jew? Personality and Participation Decisions Among American Jews Ages 21-35

By Deborah N. Tuttle

Hebrew Union College - Jewish Institute of Religion School of Jewish Communal Service, April 2007

What Jewish activities do American Jews, ages 21-35, engage in? What motivation drives them to participate, and to continue participating? What role does individual personality temperament play in these decisions? This study answers these questions based on a 662-response online survey. This research brings greater insight both into how young adults plan to participate and how their personalities affect their perception of participation. It also indicates a number of ways in which young adult programming needs to be expanded and improved. In short, this thesis increases our ability to engage young American Jews in Jewish life.
