Abstract

This paper argues that local Jewish community studies have much to contribute, not only at the local level, but also to the national discussion of American Jewry. Local communities have invested significant resources executing local Jewish community studies because the results contribute much to the understanding of, and planning for, individual communities. In an era when no national study has been completed for more than a decade, researchers should make more use of the significant number of extant local Jewish community studies. Examples are provided of the utilization of local Jewish community study data in the examination of national issues.
