Pew Spews News Of Jews


Washington – The Pew Research Institute this week issued yet another study on the American Jewish community, which it described as “much loved and reviled – and that’s just among its own.”

Among the more revealing findings: Ninety percent of Reform Jews said they are committed to Tikkun Olam but 81 percent wanted to know what that meant in Hebrew.

Eighty-seven percent of Orthodox Jews said they see Donald Trump as the potential Messiah if you squint your eyes very tightly, and 74 percent of Conservative Jews believe the Pew Report was divinely inspired but written by men.

The next Pew Report on American Jewish life will deal with How Long American Jews Wait After A Meat Meal On Shabbat Before Checking Their iPhone and Whether Women Can Sit At the Seder If They Have A Yeast Infection.
