Jewish Americans. Three Generations in a Jewish Community.
Goldstein, Sidney; Goldscheider, Calvin
This study concentrates on generation change and social change in a Jewish community in the metropolitan area of Providence, Rhode Island, as a means of delineating the multidimensional nature of assimilation patterns among three generations of American Jews. Concomitant to a consideration of the degree and nature of assimilation and acculturation is a consideration of intragenerational variation of homogeneity and heterogeneity within the Jewish population. In addition to presenting a general description of migration to America, this study deals with a demographic and sociological analysis of population growth and composition, distribution, migration, fertility, mortality, family structure, socio-economic status, and religious identification. Also included is an appendix containing the research methods employed in this study. (Authors/SB)
