American Jews turned to synagogues more than any other Jewish institutions after the Sept. 11 terror attacks. According to a recent survey conducted by the Wilstein Institute for Jewish Studies, a plurality of Jews — 45 percent — did not go to any Jewish institution for support. But among those who did, the survey found that 38 percent said they sought solace in a synagogue, 4 percent at a Jewish federation, 3 percent at a Jewish school and 3 percent through a Jewish social service agency.
