Kinsey Report Explains Scarcity of Jews Among Sex Offender Groups

Download PDF for this date

The view that Jewish family life and cultural values serve to minimize the number of sex crimes committed by Jews is offered in the new Kinsey Report which will be published on July 29th. The 923-page report entitled “Sex Offenders” deals with the findings of the late sexologist Dr. Alfred Kinsey and his associates.

“There are elements in Jewish culture and family life that militate against the commission of crime. There are simply far too few Jews in our prison and sex offender groups to be explained in any other way.”
