Come On, Get Happy

Take a look at this! The following Gallup Poll report lends statistical weight to something we’ve been saying all along. Being a religious Jew brings a person the greatest sense of well-being possible. (And Gallup wasn’t even mentioning the infinite well-being of the World-to-Come…)

So check out the stats and come get happy. Join us for a class or program at The Jewish Experience.

Very Religious Have Higher Wellbeing Across All Faiths

Jews have highest wellbeing overall

by Frank Newport, Sangeeta Agrawal, and Dan Witters

PRINCETON, NJ — Very religious Americans of all major faiths — and even those who do not have a formal religious identity — have higher overall wellbeing than do their respective counterparts who are moderately religious or nonreligious. This relationship, based on an analysis of more than 372,000 interviews, is statistically significant after major demographic and regional variables are controlled for.

Gallup research has previously documented that Americans who are the most religious have the highest wellbeing. The current results confirm that this same pattern persists within all major faith groups, including those who have no formal religious identity.
