The first-ever National Jewish Educator Census provides an estimate of the number of Jewish educators across multiple sectors of American Jewish life, changes to the workforce due to Covid 19, and other information that will help leaders and stakeholders in Jewish education understand the state of the field as they prepare for a post-Covid world. The estimates reflect the size and scope of the workforce before the Covid pandemic. A second round of the Census will launch in June 2021, offering an opportunity to learn about the size of and changes to the Jewish education workforce one year into the pandemic, as well as to collect more demographic data about Jewish educators.

The census was conducted by CASJE (Collaborative for Applied Studies in Jewish Education) at George Washington University and led by lead researcher, Dr. Ariela Greenberg, founder of The Greenberg Team. The Census is part of the CASJE Career Trajectories Study, a multi-year, national research effort addressing the recruitment, retention, and development of educators working in Jewish settings in North America. Other parts of the study will be released later this summer.

CASJE’s multi-year research project examining the career trajectories of Jewish educators is generously funded by the William Davidson Foundation and Jim Joseph Foundation.
