More on Jews: The question was raised about the beliefs of Russian-American Jews. GSS data indicates that 5% are atheists, 21% are agnostic, and the rest are believers. As for Russian Americans who have no religion, we don't know how many of them are of Jewish ancestry, but if any are, they chose to say "no religion" rather than "Jewish."
I was also curious about how the breakdown of the mother countries from which Jews have emigrated to the U.S.:
1. Russia 42%
2. Poland 15
3. Germany 9
4. Hungary 5
5. Rumania 3
5. England 3
7. Lithuania 2
7. Italy 2
9. Other European countries 5
So a clear plurality of American Jews are originally from Russia. We can say that in America many Russians are Jews, and many Jews are Russians. I'm surprised how few are from Germany.
