To support its work in the Jewish nonprofit sector, Leading Edge commissioned an analysis of the Building Resilient Jewish Communities study (BRJC) data that focused specifically on the experience of Jewish professionals and those working for Jewish organizations.

Findings have implications for short- and medium-term planning for Leading Edge’s advocacy and work as well as for organizations across the Jewish community.
