Integrity of Barna Data on Jewish Millennials Called into Question by Some Jewish Leaders. Jews for Jesus Responds:

The results of a recently released study by the Barna Group, Jewish Millennials: The Beliefs and Behaviors Shaping Young Jews in America, have been called into question by some Jewish leaders. This reaction is emotional and unfounded.

Jews for Jesus Executive Director David Brickner says, “The Barna Group is a well-established polling company with impeccable credentials. Yes, the survey found that 58% of Jewish millennials were raised in homes with one Jewish parent, And yes, the survey also found that 21% of Jewish millennials believe that Jesus was God in human form. But as Dr. Ari Kelman, Jewish studies professor at Stanford University, said concerning Barna, ‘They were good social scientists with skin in the game…I’ve been in this world long enough to know that the people who fund that research don’t interfere. They don’t cook the books.'”
