If you’re Jewish, 16-years-old or over, live in the UK and self-identify as Charedi (Strictly Orthodox) – we want to hear from you. Your opinion matters - make it count by completing this important survey.
JPR's 2024 UK Charedi Community Survey
The JPR 2024 Charedi Community Survey gives Strictly Orthodox Jews living in the UK the opportunity to share their needs and opinions, to help policymakers gain the insights they need to plan for the community's future and foster Charedi Jewish life in the UK. It includes questions on a wide range of topics, from family life, education and socioeconomics to experiences and perceptions of antisemitism.
We want all Charedi community members to contribute to this survey. So, if you self-identify as a Charedi Jew, are 16-years-old or above, and currently live in the UK, we need you to make your opinions count by joining the JPR Research Panel and completing this critical survey.
What is the JPR panel?
JPR conducts online surveys about a wide range of issues of concern to Jewish organisations operating across the community. JPR panel was formed at the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, when real-time data about how the coronavirus affected Jews in the UK was crucial. We collect and analyse data to ensure that organisations and policymakers working to support and enhance Jewish life have the statistics and information they need.
The data we generate is designed to provide community leaders with the information they need to help them plan for the future. Our research panel is a large database of Jews from across the UK who have agreed to participate in these surveys and share their thoughts on key issues affecting Jewish life. Anyone who is Jewish, aged 16 or above and lives in the UK is free to join.
The panel is managed by the Institute for Jewish Policy Research (JPR), an independent research organisation providing data to help Jewish organisations in the UK and across Europe plan for the future. You can learn more about our work by visiting the JPR website: www.jpr.org.uk
Who will be using the results of this survey?
First and foremost, the findings from this survey will be shared with Charedi community leaders to ensure that they have a detailed and comprehensive understanding of Charedi community opinion on some of the most pressing topics concerning Charedi Jews today.
Working in close cooperation with community leaders, we expect the data then to be used to help support community work aimed at enhancing Charedi life, and promoting better services across all key fields, including housing, education, welfare and combating antisemitism.
Do I have to join the panel to take part in JPR surveys?
No, you don't have to register to join the panel to complete this particular survey. However, at the end of the questionnaire you will be offered to join the panel and participate in future surveys. Once you register your details as a panel member, you will receive a £5 gift voucher as a thank you.
Joining the JPR panel is important as it helps us to ensure that our findings are as representative as possible of the Jewish population, and to track changes that occur over time. We only hold one or two surveys each year, and joining the panel does not mean you have to take part in all, or any, of them – you are free to opt out at any time.
How long will it take me to complete the survey?
JPR's 2024 UK Charedi Community Survey takes about 20 minutes to complete but can be a little longer or shorter than that. You do not have to complete the survey in one sitting: once you have registered, you will be sent a personalised link to the survey, which you can use to complete it at any time. If you choose to stop at any point, you can use that same link to come back into the survey at the point where you left off.
How will you protect my privacy?
JPR complies with data protection legislation and has a strict policy not to sell or share personal information with third parties. Any data collected will not be supplied, shared or disclosed to any external organisations or individuals, unless you give explicit permission or there is a legal obligation to do so. However, there may be some cases where we will have to share your personal data, such as if we are required to do so by law or in response to a court order or law enforcement agency.
On occasion, we may share your email address with trusted suppliers of survey incentives in order for panel members to receive prizes and awards. In addition, in exceptional circumstances, where we think someone is at serious risk of being harmed or is in immediate danger, we may contact the police or a local health or relevant safeguarding team to intervene.
All individual responses to JPR surveys are treated in the strictest confidence and anonymised and amalgamated for analytical purposes. No individuals will be able to be identified in the results. After analysis, our anonymised research findings are shared to support community planning.
Your responses will be used only for statistical tabulations, such as "75% of Jews in the UK make at least one charitable donation per annum" or "60% of Jews in the UK belong to a synagogue." Your individual answers will never be shown in a manner that reveals your identity. For further details click here.
Are there any rewards for taking part?
After completing this survey and registering to the JPR Research Panel, you will be eligible to receive a £5 gift voucher. You can use the voucher yourself or pass it on to friends or family as a gift.
How can I contact you for further details or to offer feedback?
