Assumptions about the attitudes and opinions of British Jews influence policy formation on key issues affecting Jewish life. Yet prior to the publication of this survey in 1996, on most issues - from internal communal problems, to social and political matters - there was no reliable information on Jewish attitudes. Policy planning suffered as a result. To fill this crucial information gap, the JPR commissioned a survey of social and political attitudes of British Jews, the first of its kind. The aim was to produce a profile of the community defined in the broadest possible terms. Uniquely, the survey focused on the interface between Jewish identity and the social and political attitudes of Jews.
