Jewish Education

CMJS research on Jewish education falls into two categories: formal and experiential. Formal education projects include studies of day schools and day school funding structures.

Experiential education projects include studies of Jewish service and Jewish camp.

Birthright Israel is a model of experiential education, and we have an extensive program of research related to the program's impact on a number of outcomes, including attachment to Israel, political views, and decisions regarding marriage and childrearing.
