How Jews and Non-Jews Differ in their Values and Intentions

Sponsored by: Berman Jewish Policy Archive at NYU Wagner

Join Profs. Steven M. Cohen and Samuel J. Abrams as they discuss the results of two recently conducted parallel national surveys of Jews and non-Jews, exploring variations not only in intention to vote, but also how and why Jews differ from the rest of the electorate. This event will announce the launch of the Berman Jewish Policy Archive at NYU Wagner.

Professor Samuel J. Abrams, Fellow at the Hamilton Center for Political Economy at NYU. Prof. Abrams is the co-author of Culture War? The Myth of a Polarized America and the forthcoming Disconnected: Disconnect: People, Politics, and Place in Twenty-First Century American Politics.
