Strengthening Jewish identity: What works?

JPR's 2011 survey of Jewish students generated a large and extremely valuable dataset about the Jewish identity of young adults. It was rendered all the more significant because the particular cohort of students investigated were those who had grown up in the era of Jewish continuity and renewal, and the heavy investment in Jewish education that accompanied it.

Using advanced statistical methods, the study both deconstructs the concept of Jewish identity into six specific dimensions, and measures the independent effects of different educational programmes on each of these dimensions.
