Jews are among the top givers of major philanthropic gifts, but largely to non-Jewish causes. Of 865 donations of $10 million or more made between 1995 and 2000, 188 came from Jews — but only 18 of those mega-gifts went to Jewish organizations, according to a study by the Institute for Jewish &
Community Research in San Francisco.
