What Do the Data Really Say? Challenge Your Notions of the Jewish Community

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Using the lens of research, we consider notions about the Jewish community and how the data support or debunk them. For example: How many Jews are there in the US and are they really "less Jewish" than before? Is Birthright Israel a 10-day party, or can it really change a participant's life? How healthy is the Jewish education system? Come and ask.
