    Washington Post ^ | 08/12/2015 | By Michael Lipka, Pew Research Center
    This analysis is by Michael Lipka, an editor focusing on religion at Pew Research Center. The nation’s population is growing more racially and ethnically diverse – and so are many of its religious groups, both at the congregational level and among broader Christian traditions. But a new analysis of data from the 2014 Religious Landscape Study also finds that these levels of diversity vary widely within U.S. religious groups. We looked at 29 groups – including Protestant denominations, other religious groups and three subsets of people who are religiously unaffiliated – based on a methodology used in our 2014 Pew...

    Jewish Scouting struggles to attract new members BY: ALAN SMASON, Staff Reporter Tuesday May 23, 2006 When Boy Scout Troop 96, chartered to B’nai Jeshurun Congregation’s Men’s Club, folded last fall after nearly 50 years of continuous operation, many felt it may have signaled the end of all Jewish scouting units in Cleveland. Through nine decades, nearly a dozen different Jewish scouting units — Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout troops and Explorer posts — have closed. Yet, hot on the heels of Troop 96 closing comes news from Temple Israel Ner Tamid (TINT) they are chartering a new...
