#throwbackthursday: Alliance for Continuing Rabbinic Education – Strategic Indicators of Impact

November 1, 2018 | News

As part of our ten-year anniversary celebration, we are participating in the popular social media trend “Throwback Thursday” by sharing a report from some of Rosov’s earliest work on our website and social media. In Rosov Consulting’s early days, sharing findings with the greater field was not a priority, so we are using this as a chance to “resurface” important research and analysis that we conducted that might not have received the audience it warranted.

This month for #throwbackthursday, we are sharing a 2013 memo to The Alliance for Continuing Rabbinic Education (ACRE).

ACRE wanted to understand attitudes and practices around evaluation in its member organizations, test whether there was consensus around the need for and utility of a set of metrics that would demonstrate impact on more distal “end users,” as well as to begin to chart a path toward developing such a set of measurements. This memo, which lays the foundation for what that evaluation might look like, offers insights and findings on a number of themes still relevant today about the role of rabbis in our communities, their potential for deep influence on “end-users,” and the important role of organizations that offer continuing education for clergy.
