Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Based on the 1990 National Jewish Population Survey, this book analyzes gender equality in education, labor force participation, and occupational achievement among American Jews, and offers a comparison with the wider American population and Israeli Jews.

"The authors demonstrate an impressive understanding of the general history of Jews in the United States and in Israel, and they use this social history to provide a helpful cultural matrix for their discussion." -- Sylvia Barack Fishman, Brandeis University

Gender Equality and American Jews studies gender equality in education, labor force participation, and occupational achievement among American Jews, based on the 1990 National Jewish Population Survey. It first focuses on education and training as key "gatekeepers" to roles in the economy, and then on the gender differences in labor force behavior and occupational attainment. To place American Jews in perspective, they are compared to the wider American population, and to Israeli Jews, presenting a multi-dimensional analysis of American Jewishness in the 1990s. The difficulties of comparing Israel and American Jews are discussed, lending insights into the similarities and differences between the two cultures.

The authors draw on a solid base of sociological literature, placing American Jews in the wider American context with comparative data. The book discusses the conclusions that can be drawn from the analysis along with some policy implications.
