By Boaz Mourad, Amelia Sandell, Carl Persson, Rachel Cooper

UJA-Federation of New York, December 2008

This study is a market survey that investigates the willingness of Jewish non-Orthodox parents in Manhattan and on Long Island to send their children to Jewish day school. It seeks to understand the psychological and social factors that influence parents' decisions. The Manhattan parent population is grouped into three broad groups: sustainers, explorers and peripherals. The Long Island population is classified into progressives, devotees, laissez-faires and detached strivers.
