Profiling the Professionals: Who's Serving Our Communities?
While Jewish communal agencies and the professionals who staff them have fostered a virtual explosion in the social scientific study of the work of these agencies, remarkably little systematic attention has been paid to these professionals themselves. Heretofore, no recent survey-based research has tried to address and comprehend the wide swath of individual incumbents in this field. We have little systematic evidence pertaining to their socio-demographic characteristics, Jewish background, current Jewish engagement, professional characteristics, and how these and other features may vary by such prime axes of social differentiation as age and gender. In this report, which analyzes results of a social scientific survey of self-selected Jewish communal professionals in the United States and Canada, we begin to advance our understanding of these and related areas.
