Chapter Summary

The most critical issue involved in this chapter is the question of Jews' insertion in German society. This issue involves how Jews perceive themselves in their present-day environment, and how they see German society, the state authority and the media. The main questions that they discussed concerned the relations of Jewish bodies with the authorities, and the manner in which the media cover and debate Jewish affairs-including Israeli topics. The chapter then focuses on the attitudes of respondents toward the diverse topics that the questionnaire addresses, and which refer in a variety of ways to issues of insertion in society. As a general rule, correlations between religiosity and attitudes were gradual, while the end- categories of religiosity, i.e. orthodox/ultra-orthodox and secular, are also at the opposed extremes of the continuum of attitudes.
