dc.description.abstract The mapping project focused on Jewish education from preschool through college. The work entailed: (1) interviewing the executives of national agencies and foundations concerned with Jewish youth education; (2) studying the philosophy and delivery of Jewish education in eight communities; and (3) building a database of organizations and programs devoted to Jewish youth education at the national level and in the eight communities of our study. All total, we interviewed about 170 individuals and gathered basic descriptive information on over 5,000 programs and organizations. Mapping Jewish Education: The National Picture presented current conditions and future trends in the field. It described the role played by foundations in the development of Jewish education and suggested what a Jewish education system—comprised of agencies, organizations, federations, philanthropists and foundations—might look like. Mapping Professional Development for Jewish Educators summarized the desirable and necessary features for effective professional development and examined current opportunities available to Jewish educators. Juxtaposing the two revealed possibilities for future growth and improvement in professional development for Jewish educators. en_US
