Camp Ramah and Adult Jewish Identity: Long-Term Influences on Conservative Congregants in North America

Sponsor(s): Melton Centre for Jewish Education, Hebrew University of Jerusalem

Principal Investigator(s): Steven M. Cohen

Key Findings:

This study of Jewish adults who attended Camp Ramah as children examines the extent and nature of impact Ramah exerted on several aspects of their current Jewish identity. The analysis tries to discern the independent impact of the Ramah experience upon the chances of marrying a Jew, taking into account the Ramah alumni's many Jewish socialization advantages. This study uses data drawn from the 1995 Study of Conservative Synagogue Members, conducted by the Ratner Center for Conservative Judaism of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America (Cohen 1996; Wertheimer 1996).
