Fifty years of research conducted by the Federation of Cleveland demonstrate the importance of research to Jewish communal service. Research helps answer basic questions such as how much money is spent, what it is spent on, how effective it was, and what should be done in the future. Because the answers to these questions were so valuable, the Cleveland federation proposed a standing research advisory committee, formally integrating research into the work of the federation. Such a move across the country would help collect and understand a tremendous amount of demographic data and provide support and direction for fundraising initiatives.
