In Gender and American Jews, Harriet Hartman and Moshe Hartman interpret the results of the two most recent National Jewish Population Surveys. Building on their critical work in Gender Equality and American Jews (1996), and drawing on relevant sociological work on gender, religion, and secular achievement, this new book brings their analysis of gendered patterns in contemporary Jewish life right to the present moment. The first part of the book examines the distinctiveness of American Jews in terms of family behavior, labor-force patterns, and educational and occupational attainment. The second investigates the interrelationships between"Jewishness" and religious, economic, and family behavior, including intermarriage. Deploying an engaging assortment of charts and graphs and a rigorous grasp of statistics, the Hartmans provide a multifaceted portrait of a multidimensional population.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Gender and American Jews: Patterns in Work, Education and Family in Contemporary Life is an important book about the gendered life of American Jews. Indeed, it is more than that; it is a glimpse into the gendered dimensions of a population that should provide the litmus test of how far we have come and/or still need to go in contemporary U.S.A. when we speak about gender parity. . . The next National Jewish Population Survey, and all of us who do research on, by, and for Jews, can only benefit from the intelligent, careful, and insightful analysis of these authors. Shofar"
Robert Liberles book Jews Welcome Coffee adds considerably to our understanding of the effects of the importation, sale, and preparation of coffee on German Jewry during the 18th century. jewishideasdaily.com"
