A Portrait of Jewish Americans: Notes from the Pew Report on Jan. 29

January 22, 2014 | Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit

How is Jewish identity changing and what are the implications for the Jewish community?  On Wednesday January 29th Dr. Laurence Kotler-Berkowitz, Senior Director, Research and Analysis and Director, Berman Jewish DataBank for The Jewish Federations of North America will be in Metro Detroit to provide presentations on the Pew Research Center report on “A Portrait of Jewish Americans.”

Join us Wednesday morning from 9:30 to 10:30 for a special program with Dr.Kotler-Berkowitz  at the Max M. Fisher Federation Building in Room F and G.  Dr. Kotler-Berkowitz will provide a brief presentation and then guide us in a conversation focused on implications of the Pew Survey on how the Pew findings impact our work as Jewish communal professionals and the work of our organizations in the Jewish community.

If our Jewish community is changing then what implications do these changes have for how we meet the needs of today’s 21st Century Jewish community?

If the millennial generation is membership adverse, what does this mean for many Jewish organizations which are membership driven?

How do we reach a generation that feels spirituality is very important, but which has diminishing interest in organized religion?

Please RSVP to Gina Andrisani ANDRISAN@JFMD.org your ability to participate in the morning program.

In addition to the morning program for professionals, in the evening Federation in collaboration with JCRC, is sponsoring a community leadership forum for lay leaders and professionals on “Implications of the Pew Survey for the Metropolitan Detroit Jewish Community”.  This program will take place at the West Bloomfield JCC from 7:00 – 9:00 pm.
