BJPA Poll of Jewish Leaders: Egyption Uprising, 2011

Sponsor(s): Berman Jewish Policy Archive at NYU Wagner (BJPA)

Principal Investigator(s): Steven M. Cohen, Samuel Abrams

Study Dates: March 13-14, 2011

Key Findings: Overnight poll of American Jewish leaders (March 13-14, 2011) focuses on measuring American Jewish leaders reaction to the Egyptian uprising.

"A BJPA survey finds that American Jewish leaders are of two minds about recent developments in Egypt -- i.e., the popular uprising that resulted in the end of the presidency of strongman Hosni Mubarak. On the one hand, American Jewish leaders warmly greet the apparent turn to democracy and human rights. At the same time, they are unsure of the implications for Israel and the Jewish state’s long-standing peace treaty with Egypt. Moreover, reactions split sharply along political lines."

Basic findings are analyzed by denominational preference and for the U.S. sample: political party preference and political orientation.
