Drawing on such diverse data sources as the 1990 National Jewish Population Survey, interviews, and a study of culture depicted in media, Fishman (sociology of American Jews, Brandeis U.) examines uniquely American hybrids of Jewish religion and ethnicity in "the Seinfeld era" in light of her concept of coalescence. As the co-director of the Hadassah International Research Institute on Jewish Women, she pays particular attention to women's experiences in negotiating both sides of hyphenated Jewish- American identity. Analysis with supporting figures and tables trace educational and occupational patterns, Jewish education, households/families, religious environments, and Jewish organizational connections.
