When Sociology Meets Geography: Spatial Variations in Jewish Family Types

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This paper provides additional data to complement Harriet Hartman’s open systems model of family presented as part of her Sklare address. Recognition of spatial variations in Jewish family types is important in understanding the “environment” in which Jewish families operate. The impact of family type on Jewish connectivity, which in Hartman’s open systems model can be viewed as a “family output,” is also addressed.
