Jews are half as likely as members of other religious groups to say that their religion is “very important” to them, according to a Gallup analysis of surveys conducted between 1992 and 1999. The study, based on telephone interviews with a randomly selected national sample of 20,000 Americans, found that while 60 percent of respondents said religion is very important in their daily lives, only 30 percent of Jewish Americans said this.
