American Jews, the people of the checkbook

Gone are the centuries when Jews were a people of the Book. According to the Gallup poll, only 17 percent of American Jews are observant, compared to about half of all Protestants and Muslims. Admittedly, it’s much simpler to be a believer in Christianity or Islam, both of which lack the rigorous regulations of Judaism.

At the same time, about 70 percent of Jews consider themselves well-off, the highest rate among religious groups in the United States.
