Employing a theoretical and conceptual framework of ethnicity and using data from NJPS 2000–01, this article examines how structural, cultural, and psychological ethnicity among Jews are linked to partisanship, ideology, and political participation. Regression analyses show opposite effects for structural and cultural ethnicity on political behavior and no effects for psychological ethnicity.
