Ad Feedback

The American Jewish population is declining in it's religious observance.

The 2008 American Religious Identification Survey found that out of the 5.4 million American Jews, only 3.4 million call themselves religious.

That's a 20 percent decline since 1989.

The study also says that 37 percent consider themselves only culturally Jewish.

Researchers blame the decline on the growing rate of inter-faith marriages.
