Philanthropic Behavior of Orthodox Households

By Jacob B. Ukeles

KTAV Publishing House, Inc., Yeshiva University Press, October 2009

With the aid of statistical and comparative analyses and graphs, the author begins a profile on the philanthropic behavior of Orthodox Jews in the New York area in 2002. He examines the behavior of Orthodox and non-Orthodox Jews--specifically Orthodox Jews giving to non-Jewish causes and to Jewish community-wide umbrella organizations--and, within the Orthodox community, the characteristics associated with Orthodox philanthropy to Jewish causes and to UJA-Federation. He does not differentiate giving to Orthodox and non-Orthodox causes. Ultimately, his charts and statistical data suggest that philanthropy is diminishing sharply among all younger Jews, regardless of religious affiliation.
