The relationship between the Religious Right and Jews is complex and multidimensional. General measures of social and political tolerance show little difference in how the people associated with the Religious Right and others evaluate Jews. On measures focusing on Jews and Israel members of the Religious Right are more supportive of the special Biblical status of Jews than others are (e.g. more supportive of the idea that God gave Israel to the Jews). But members of the Religious Right are less favorable than others concerning various social and economic statements about Jews. In particular, the Religious Right is much more supportive of the idea that Jews need to be converted to Christianity.
