Jewish Early Engagement in New York
UJA-Federation of New York, June 2010
UJA-Federation of New York’s Commission on Jewish Identity and Renewal (COJIR) established the Beginning Jewish Families Task Force in 2008 to plan initiatives for expectant parents and families with children ages zero to 2. The intent is to encourage early engagement among these families so that they will become involved in Jewish life when they first have children and make subsequent Jewish choices, rather than choose to become involved with secular institutions.
In order to maximize the effectiveness of these proposed pilot programs, the COJIR task force felt it was important to conduct local market research. This study sought relevant information about parents and institutions in each of the five communities being considered. Specifically, it focused on three types of information:
• Information about parents, particularly parents who were not engaged in Jewish life
• Information about Jewish institutions
• Information about for-profit businesses and nonprofit organizations that provide programs and services to parents.
