In 2011 we started following a cohort of 1,000 Jewish 11-year-olds as they entered Jewish and non-Jewish secondary schools in Britain. We were interested in finding out about their Jewish behaviors, attitudes and identity, milestones, and significant events. What follows in this article is an analysis of six family stories, which show how we have been charting change over time in three ways—through themes that develop within a single family over time, themes that develop across the sample of six families over time, and themes that resonate with all six families at one moment in time.

What do we want the future to look like? How can Youth Provision in the UK Jewish Community best develop to engage Jewish young people in a Jewish journey? These questions are at the heart of this Commission, set up in April 2013 as a partnership between the Jewish Leadership Council (JLC) and UJIA. We identified three particular areas in which Commissioners shared a broad consensus of interest: CONTINUITY – ensuring that the next generation are interested in living a Jewish life (in as much variety as that might mean), COMMUNITY – exploring the ways in which young people engage with the Jewish community ISRAEL, – the relevance of Israel in a young person’s life. Our research aimed to: a) Map the current Jewish informal provision for young people in the UK b) Identify and reflect on existing strategy, policy and provision c) Assess how that provision has changed in the past generation.

As early as the mid-1990s, individuals within the Jewish community in the UK were discussing the potential of setting up a pluralist Jewish secondary school in London. Until 1981, every Jewish school in the UK had operated under Orthodox auspices. By 1999, three pluralist primary schools were thriving, and the political and Jewish communal climate was ready to support the development of a new kind of Jewish secondary school. A feasibility study in 2001 led to the formation of a steering group and the project was born.

Whilst the focus for the community in the last twenty years has been on putting enormous resources into developing the day school system in the UK, the result has been that the supplementary system has lagged behind in every sense. One reason for this deficiency of resourcing is that the community has been focusing their attention on the goal of having almost all Jewish children in Jewish day schools by 2020. A consultative research project has taken place to determine recommendations to take to the UJIA to invest in a strategy which addresses the needs of those children who attend supplementary Jewish schools and not Jewish day schools, as the locus for their Jewish education.
