70% of Israeli Jews Fast [Ha'aretz considers only secular to be "Israelis"?]

70% of Israeli Jews Fast
Dr. Aaron Lerner Date: 12 October 2005

Ha'aretz's Yom Kippur Eve edition (12 October) includes a headline reading
"A quarter of Israelis will spend money on entertainment for Yom Kippur".
Buried in the article and also at the very bottom of the article in super
fine print below an illustration of results, Haaretz mentions that the
results are of a poll carried out by Geocartography that was limited to
secular Israeli Jews. The poll found that 49% of secular Jews planned to
fast and 76% had no plans to spend any money on entertainment (rent movies,
etc.) for Yom Kippur.

Telephone poll carried out by New Wave of a sample of Israeli Jews for
Yediot Ahronot
Percent who said they planned to fast on Yom Kippur:
Total: 70%
Men 66% Women 73%
Age 18-24: 77% Age 65+ 49%
Education below high school 77% College educated 64%
