778. Jewish Religious Behavior in Israel 1991
Authors: Levy, Shlomit; Levinsohn, Hanna and Elihu Katz

The objective of this study, commissioned by AVI CHAI foundation and conducted by Louis Guttman Institute of Applied Social Research, was to study religious observance, social interaction, beliefs and values of Jews in Israel. Specifically, it explored the actual observance of mitzvoth, social and demographic differences in religious behavior, the role of religion in public life, Jewish identification, Jewish beliefs and values as well as general social values. The study also investigated issues of interaction among social groups that differ in the character of their religious observance and ethnic origin. Different questionnaires were designed for the two samples, one focusing primarily on Jewish religious behavior and social values, and the other focusing on social interaction among Jews. 85 common questions were asked of the two samples. The respondents, one in each household, were interviewed face-to-face in their homes. N=2,399.

779. Jewish Religious Behavior in Israel 2000
Authors: Levy, Shlomit; Levinsohn, Hanna and Elihu Katz

This study is a sequel to the previous study conducted in 1991 and is also available at ISDC data collection (dataset #778). Like its predecessor, the 2000 study was commissioned by AVI CHAI foundation and embraces a variety of topics related to religious observance, social interaction, beliefs and values of Jews in Israel. Specifically, it explored the actual observance of mitzvoth, social and demographic differences in religious behavior, the role of religion in public life, Jewish identification, Jewish beliefs and values as well as general social values, and issues of interaction among social groups that differ in the character of their religious observance and ethnic origin. Methodologically, the study follows its predecessor exactly, only making room for the arrival of almost a million immigrants from the former Soviet Union during the 1990’s. Like its predecessor, this study employs a structured questionnaire in which all questions – about 150 – are “closed”. The respondents, one in each household, were interviewed face-to-face in their homes. N=2,466 in the national sample and 373 in the FSU sample.

760. Victimization Survey 2001
Author: Israel Central Bureau of Statistics

Between January and March 2001, the Central Bureau of Statistics conducted a Victimization Survey as a supplement to Labor Force Survey 2001 - 1st quarter. This is the fourth victimization survey conducted by the CBS and commissioned by the Ministry of Public Security. The previous ones were carried out in 1979, 1981 and 1990 (see ISDC #752). Its objectives are to estimate the number of victimized households and persons by offences against property or person; to investigate the degree of risk in various regions and social groups; to examine the degree of damage; to investigate victims who complained to the police, and if not, the reasons for not doing so. The main investigated crimes are: car theft; theft of car parts and items from inside the car; car and motorcycle damage; theft from apartment; burglary; theft from children; violence against children; sexual assault and sexual harassment. See CBS Hebrew publication. N= 4,165 households and 3,777 adults.
