The average American Jewish family with children must spend about 40 percent of its income to participate fully in Jewish life, according to an American Jewish Committee study. Sending two children to Jewish day school and summer camp, paying for synagogue and Jewish community center membership and making a moderate Jewish federation gift of $200 totals more than $30,000, according to “The Costs of Jewish Living: Revisiting Jewish Involvements and Barriers.”
