Abstract

Charles Kadushin observes that social network questions are "almost never used in Jewish studies." This paper examines four of the rare examples where social network questions have been used in Jewish studies. These four examples demonstrate that the inclusion of social network questions in Jewish social research have important practical application for planning and policy in the Jewish community.
