Resources & Research

The Jewish Education Project is actively tracking trends and opportunities related to educational innovation. We have also learned a great deal from our previous projects and have gleaned significant insights and resources that are valuable to share. Through curated resources and original research, we help educators and Jewish communal leaders better understand – and more effectively address – how to adapt models, respond to new research, and hold onto the best of what we have already re-imagined.

You can browse or sort through our resources below and you will find them spread throughout our site, labeled Related Resources.
