Jewish Teen Engagement Study Now Available

April 4, 2014 | Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit

The Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit has just completed a Jewish Teen Engagement Study designed to learn about Jewish teen involvement in the Detroit metropolitan Jewish community, as well as Jewish teen programming across the country.  Information for the study was collected from November 2013 – February 2014 and consists of interviews with 22 local Jewish teen program providers, a teen survey completed by local 240 Jewish teens, conversations with national leaders in the field of Jewish teen engagement and research on national trends in the United States. The findings in the study will be used to help develop a strategic plan, with pragmatic recommendations for engaging more Jewish teens in meaningful Jewish identity building programs.

Our vision is to develop a Jewish community culture and supporting infrastructure where 90% of Metropolitan Detroit Jewish teens annually participate in at least three deeply meaningful Jewish experiences.  Deeply meaningful experiences would consist of intense Jewish programs which create the potential for significantly impacting Jewish identity.

The Jewish Federation has convened a Jewish Teen Engagement Task Force, chaired by Sue Curhan, that will now use the study  to help guide them in making recommendations for future investment and support for Jewish teen programs.
