Young Israeli Jews learn little about American Jewry in school, according to a new study. More than 60 percent said the subject had never been studied at all, while 13 percent said the subject of American Jewry was studied at least once. The study, conducted by the American Jewish Committee, surveyed 150 history and civics teachers. Recent studies of American Jews in their 20s and 30s, meanwhile, indicated a very low sense of connection to Israel.
