Linda Adler Hurwitz
01:39:03
What defines "raising a child Jewishly?'
Carly Lobenstein
01:40:56
did she say how many were In single adult households?
Beth Cousens (she/ her) (JFNA)
01:41:01
Linda, great question. Let's ask Arielle what she thinks - and, it's a question to ask everyone today.
Peretz Hirshbein him/his
01:42:04
Will this data be available to us?
Beth Cousens (she/ her) (JFNA)
01:42:25
Peretz, the recording will be available. We can see what Arielle can put into writing.
Peretz Hirshbein him/his
01:42:34
Thanks!
Rebecca Engel, Charleston, SC
01:43:28
Is this data also broken down by region/size of communities?
Max Moline
01:43:41
Arielle - is there info on how the synagogue membership percentages have changed over time?
Saskia Swenson Moss
01:43:44
in the "orthodox" definition, does that include modern orthodox?
Rebecca Engel, Charleston, SC
01:43:48
Are there differences in the northeast vs other areas over the country?
Beth Cousens (she/ her) (JFNA)
01:44:00
Rebecca, we can try to break down the data post-FedLab and send it out.
Beth Cousens (she/ her) (JFNA)
01:44:22
Saskia - yes. It would include anyone who identified "orthodox" on Pew.
Beth Cousens (she/ her) (JFNA)
01:45:59
I sense a hunger for more data! The good news is that a new Pew study is coming out soon... that may be a good reason (and source of data) to launch a series unpacking the data. Stay tuned!
Miriam Roochvarg
01:46:23
^That would be great!
Peretz Hirshbein him/his
01:47:06
I think we all know our own narrow view of our own communities but are even more aware that we can't generalize from our own experiences.
Linda Adler Hurwitz
01:47:16
If 42%of interfaith families are raising a child Jewishly, does this mean from the results of the Pew study, that over 30% of non orthodox families are not raising their children at all Jewishly?
Erika Rudin-Luria
01:49:35
pew isn't totally accurate
Alan Himmel
01:50:00
we will be able to receive the information that Arielle is saying along with the powerpoint?
Beth Cousens (she/ her) (JFNA)

peninah
01:59:08
Can we make looking for the car keys Jewish in some way?
Rachel Jacobus
01:59:53
Yes, Yes! Whenever we lose something in the house we say the blessing: https://www.chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/541921/jewish/Is-there-a-prayer-for-lost-objects.htm
Gabrielle Burger, CJE Baltimore
02:00:30
Peninah, there is a prayer that you can say when you are looking for something lost, and when it is found! I am sure there is a way to make that less religious, and more attainable for everyone.
Beth Cousens (she/ her) (JFNA)
02:00:49
Arielle, thank you! This has been an incredible dive into the family.It is also a good illustration that today is going to move very quickly. There will be time for conversation and digestion and also more that we want to say!
