The Consortium for Applied Studies in Jewish Education (CASJE) has announced an exciting new collaboration among practitioners, researchers, and funders of Jewish education. The Consortium will lead efforts to identify key education questions, assist researchers in designing more robust methods, and facilitate work that translates research findings into strengthened practice — in informal and formal Jewish education. The effort will be supported through grants from the AVI CHAI and Jim Joseph foundations, as well as support from the Mandell and Madeleine Berman Foundation, to CASJE’s fiscal agent, the Stanford University Graduate School of Education.
AVI CHAI is delighted to partner with the other funders in supporting this effort to develop a strong evidence base for Jewish education. Executive Director – North America Yossi Prager said, “Since such an evidence base will advance the field’s ability to make education, program, and funding decisions, it is aligned with our hope of leaving a strong Jewish education field after our sunset.”
