Exploring the Associations between Jewish Early Care and Education and Jewish Engagement: Appendix C - Community Scans of the Target Communities

Publication Description

In November 2016, the Consortium for Applied Studies in Jewish Education (CASJE) launched a major research initiative, funded by Crown Family Philanthropies, to explore the ways in which Jewish ECE may serve as a gateway for greater and long-term involvement in Jewish life. The mixed-methods, multi-year study addressed three questions:  

  1. What does “Jewish engagement” mean to Jewish families with young children and to Jewish early childhood professionals?
  2. How do Jewish ECE and early engagement programs engage parents with young children, and what are the barriers to parental or family engagement?
  3. How does Jewish engagement change over time for Jewish families with young children, and do these patterns differ for families who do and do not enroll their children in Jewish ECE?

The materials in this report present findings related to the second research question of the CASJE ECE Project.
