Research on the religious and spiritual lives of American youth can involve methodological issues and challenges different from those encountered when studying adults, or when not exploring religious factors in the lives of youth. This report provides an introductory overview of some of those issues and challenges. It is written for interested researchers who are less experienced in studying youth and religion, as well as for consumers of research who are interested in improving their ability to assess the value of research findings. This is not a comprehensive, technical manual or textbook in research methods, but rather a general survey of some of the more important problems, questions, and choices that arise in the study of American youth and religion.<br /><br />Download the report here:<br /> <a class="doclink" href="index.php?option=com_docman&amp;task=doc_download&amp;gid=684&amp; ...

From the time they enter the day school system, our students are exposed to Israel both as a modern state and as part of Jewish history. Although different elementary and middle schools experience varying levels of success engaging the students in an appreciation for the modern state as it is steeped in our history and religion, we have found that many students feel as though they have had Israel shoved down their throats and they feel no connection to it. By the time they reach high school they view Israel as a few nice stories with no practical relevance to their lives. At best there are those who acknowledge Israel as part of our past and as a place to support, much as any needy institution. It will take courage, commitment, and a bit of risk to overhaul the current middle and high school Zionism.

MAKOM, the result of a partnership between Jewish communities and the Jewish Agency for Israel is a 'next-practice' endeavor, forming and driving experimental community networks that meet the call of re-imagining the place of Israel in Jewish life. MAKOM works to empower Jewish educators, rabbis, arts and community leaders to develop deep, sophisticated and honest Israel programming.

This report from the Fisher-Bernstein Institute for Jewish Philanthropy and Leadership describes professional development efforts in Jewish education.
