CASJE (Collaborative for Applied Studies in Jewish Education) is an evolving community of researchers, practitioners, and philanthropic leaders dedicated to improving the quality of knowledge that can be used to guide the work of Jewish Education.


CASJE is housed at George Washington University in the Graduate School of Education and Human Development.

Our core operations are supported by generous grants from the Jim Joseph Foundation and Crown Family Philanthropies.

The Collaborative supports research shaped by the wisdom of practice, practice guided by research, and philanthropy informed by a sound base of evidence. To achieve these ends, CASJE aims to build the capacity needed to do high-quality applied research, nurture the institutions where research is conducted, and secure funding that supports and enables these important activities.
