    The sample was recruited through the Union of Jewish Students database, 17 Jewish student nodes, and a modest advertising campaign. It thus was essentially self-selecting and is known to be skewed towards students who were more Jewishly engaged. There was a parallel online survey of 761 general university students, for benchmarking purposes, as well as five focus groups in June and July 2011 attended by 43 Jewish students.
