This month, two different research studies have been released that shed light on the realities of American Jewish life … and Rhode Island Jewish life.
The Pew Research Center, a subsidiary of the Pew Charitable Trusts, is a very highly respected independent body that conducts research on a range of public issues. On October 1, the Center published a major study of American Jews. In the course of close to 150 pages, the “Portrait of Jewish Americans” presents statistics and analysis of Jewish American population estimates, intermarriage and other demographics, religious beliefs and practices, trends in American Jewish identity and more.

NEWPORT – Having read several recent articles about the reading of the George Washington Letter in The Jewish Voice and the 350th anniversary of the Royal Charter, I am concerned that many people are confusing religious freedom with toleration. The intent of the Yeshuat Israel Congregation in Newport in 1790 was to seek clarification of this issue from President George Washington.

Reverend Betsy Aldrich Garland at a marriage equality event this spring /Nancy Kirsch“That it is much on their hearts … to hold forth a lively experiment, that a most flourishing civil state may stand and best be maintained … with a full liberty in religious concernments.”
(From the Rhode Island Charter, granted by King Charles II, July 8, 1663.)
As a state, we should feel significant pride in our recently passed marriage equality legislation that came into law Aug. 1.
