Chapter Summary

The data presented in the study was collected in the course of a large socio-demographic and attitudinal survey conducted among a representative sample of French Jewry during the month of January 2002. This comprehensive survey included questions on issues such as Jewish identity, Jewish life and Jewish education. The ongoing in-depth research of French Jewry presented here has revealed a comprehensive picture of the community not readily apparent even to those living in France. Jews of France are a highly educated, financially successful and socially well-integrated population, generally happy and satisfied with their lives. Yet they are also deeply worried about terrorism, anti-Semitism, racism indicating a level of disquiet with the current atmosphere in France. The typology developed based on multi-dimensional analysis of the core values held by French Jews provides a framework for understanding the dynamics within the community.
