Career Trajectories of Jewish Educators in the United States (2019-2022)

This study has established an agenda and set of terms for thinking about how to address the challenge of Jewish educator recruitment. It has been especially important for providers of professional development in identifying the contribution of PD to educators’ sense of self-efficacy, satisfaction, and career commitment. Its impact is still taking shape.

GenZ Now: Understanding & Connecting With Jewish Teens Today (2017-2019)

This study was the result of a unique collaborative partnership between funders, researchers, and the leadership of 14 national youth-serving organizations. The survey responses of over 17,000 Jewish teens provides a heretofore unprecedented understanding into who these teens are, what they care about and want, and to some extent, what the Jewish community can do to enhance their lives as people, and as Jews.

Hillel International Measuring Excellence

Hillel’s 2014-2019 strategic implementation plan, The Drive to Excellence, articulated a set of engagement goals to help a significant number of Jewish students make an enduring commitment to Jewish life, learning, and Israel.

Pears Foundation Longitudinal Study (2011-2018)

This was the first-ever longitudinal study of Jewish day school students, designed to explore the contribution of school to their Jewish lives. The study has been vitally important to the way that Jewish communal organizations in the UK think about the role of schools and the provision of Jewish education and engagement services at college and beyond.
