Jewish Americans in 2020

What does it mean to be Jewish in America? Our new survey finds that many Jewish Americans participate, at least occasionally, both in some traditional religious practices and in some Jewish cultural activities. Among young Jewish adults, however, two sharply divergent expressions of Jewishness appear to be gaining ground – one involving religion deeply enmeshed in every aspect of life, and the other involving little or no religion at all. There is also evidence that the U.S. Jewish population is becoming more racially and ethnically diverse.

How U.S. lawmakers have discussed Asian Americans on social media

Members of Congress are increasingly mentioning Asian Americans on Facebook and Twitter, according to a new analysis of more than five years of their social media activity.

And only a third said their origin is central to their identity.

More than a year after the coronavirus outbreak began, the financial impact on Black Americans has varied, with the college educated and those who are older faring slightly better than those with lower levels of education and younger adults. Overall, 34% of Black Americans say their personal financial situation is either in excellent or good shape, compared with 53% of U.S. adults overall. But while 49% of Black adults with a college degree say this, the share falls to 30% among those with some college experience or less.
