At the Jim Joseph Foundation, we have invested time and dollars over recent years exploring the role that we, as a funder, can play in moving the field of Jewish education closer towards the adoption of shared measurement tools. Grants to the Jewish Survey Question Bank, JData, and the Consortium for Applied Studies in Jewish Education have helped key Foundation partners from the research community advance measurement, assessment, and knowledge-sharing across initiatives and varied educational settings. Looking towards the year ahead, we are optimistic that two collaborative projects now in development will take this work to the next level, as key leaders from within the field of Jewish education endeavor to develop shared measurement tools for two important age cohorts—Jewish college students and Jewish teens.

In 2009, Ma'yan's second cohort of Research Training Interns decided to find out how Bat Mitzvah is experienced and understood by girls today. The Research Training Internship (RTI) is grounded in the principles of Participatory Action Research, which means that we conduct research as a collaborative, intergenerational team -- researching with Jewish teen girls instead of on them. Using an online survey and a novel research method (asking participants to write endings to fictional Bat Mitzvah-related scenarios), we gathered data from pre- and post-Bat Mitzvah girls in the Tri-State area.
