Jewish Educators, Clergy, Engagement Professionals, and the War in Israel

Updated: May 25

We are excited to announce the successful completion and official launch of our extensive research study, Responding to this Historical Jewish Moment: Jewish Educators, Clergy, Engagement Professionals, and the War in Israel”. After months of data collection and analysis, this study represents a significant milestone in our commitment to fostering knowledge and understanding in the field.

Administered by our team, this study embarked on a journey to explore the impact of October 7th on educators. We aimed to provide comprehensive insights and actionable findings, addressing the pressing questions and challenges in rising to the moment and supporting students and learners.


Key Findings

The final report unveils a series of key discoveries and conclusions:

  • 1) 35% of educators are confident (“very strongly” or “strongly agreeing”) in their ability to help their learners.

  • 2)  72% selected “Safety-Fear” as a dynamic evoking big issues and questions for themselves and their learners.

  • 3) 70% selected “Facts-Narratives” as a dynamic evoking big issues and questions for themselves and their learners.


The implications of our findings are profound, with the potential to influence curricula. We have formulated a set of strategic recommendations aimed at providing necessary resources for the community of educators. The full report is now available for you to delve into the complete analysis, detailed findings, and our comprehensive set of recommendations. You can access the full report here.

A summary of findings that was shared in eJewishPhilanthropy can be found here.


Gratitude

We extend our deepest gratitude to everyone involved in the study – from the initiators of the study, M²: The Institute for Experiential Jewish Education, and the Jewish Education Project, to the many partner organizations, and to the surveyed educators who shared their valuable insights. This collaborative effort was instrumental in the impact and success of this research.

We believe that this study is just the beginning. Stay connected with us for more insights, updates, and discussions as we continue to build on this research and explore the impact on Jewish educators of October 7th and the current war in Gaza.
