Jewish Service Learning: What Is and What Could Be: A Summary of an Analysis of the Jewish Service Learning Landscape

By Jill Blair, Ellen Irie

Informing Change, May 2008

The authors examine the current state of Jewish Service Learning, the current capacity among practitioners, the support required to further that capacity and the relevance of secular national service and other faith-based service traditions in defining the potential and evolution of Jewish Service Learning. Among their findings: that few university-age Jews participate in Jewish service learning; that potential demand outpaces current participation; that short-term alternative break programs predominate the field; that participants are key to recruitment; and that, while there are limited data on outcomes, secular service program outcomes predict favorably for Jewish Service Learning.
