Despite worries that American Jews are disconnecting from the faith, survey shows 62% of their charitable contributions go to Jewish organizations.

"Amid lingering concern that American Jews are disconnecting from Jewish institutions, a new report shows that most Jewish charitable giving goes to organizations with Jewish ties.... Nearly two-thirds (62 percent) of dollars donated by American Jews goes to Jewish institutions.... Jews affiliated with the Orthodox, Conservative and Reform movements of Judaism all give at similar rates, and synagogue membership is a better indicator of higher rates of giving to Jewish organizations than is affiliation with a particular movement, the study found." -- Lauren Markoe, the Washington Post
