“The religious institution also acts as a community center of sorts for immigrants in Canada.” How was this statement true among the three religious immigrant communities (Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim) discussed in The Religions of Canadians (Scott et al.)? You must support your answer with one concrete example from each community, and end with a discussion on why this evolution was inevitable.


Some gender-based research have suggested women are generally more collectivistic than men. This seemed to ring true among the two religious groups of young adults (Hindu and Muslim) in Growing Up Canadian (Beyer and Ramji), as well as the American young adult Catholics surveyed by Hoge et al. Discuss one example from each of the Hindu, Muslim, and American Catholic young adult groups that suggested women are more collectivistic in their religious behaviour than men. *Each example you provide must represent a different component of collectivism from the previous ones. You must clearly relate the definitions of collectivism as discussed in the course to the concrete examples.


Recall the module on the history of Jews in Canada. Discrimination against Jews in Canada has fluctuated (from discrimination to fairness) from the very beginning of the community’s history to recent times. How so? Please provide three distinct examples and include an explanation of the social/political factors that likely contributed to these fluctuations.


What are three differences in attitudes/behaviour that emerged between the Jewish young adults and their older generational counterparts in the Week 12 module on Jewish identity in Canada? (Discuss two differences from the Jewish Identity Survey 2018 and one difference from the article “The Appeal of Orthodoxy.”) Note: At least one of the differences you discuss must concern the characteristic of “being part of community,” and you must include a discussion of the factors that likely contributed to each of the three generational differences.
