Do you know all of the Jewish experiences your community provides?
Are your community’s Jewish organizations meeting the needs of everyone who is, or could be, a part of your community?
Is there a void of programming or engagement initiatives for certain yet unreached audiences?
Jewish communities are undergoing rapid changes. Audiences are less traditionally engaged, organizational budgets are stretched thin, Jewish experiences occur in any number of settings—both virtual and in-person—and previous norms of Jewish life have evolved. We gather data and provide analysis so you know what assets and offerings your community has, whether they are being leveraged effectively for maximum impact, and how your audiences and potential audiences want to and are experiencing your community’s Jewish life. We partner with you to understand how this information can be leveraged to advance your goals.
Understanding Interests and Needs
Uncovers important information about audiences’ needs, interests, and demand for your current and prospective offerings, whether in Jewish education, engagement, or social services. This enables you to make budgetary decisions with your current and potential audiences in mind.
Mapping Communal Assets
Shows which assets exist and are utilized in a community, and how they could be leveraged to better deliver offerings that audiences want. By combining this information with demographic and other community data, we can help inform your local strategic philanthropic priorities.
Analyzing the Marketplace
Compares organizations’ capacities to deliver offerings with what target audiences consume. Sometimes this “supply and demand” aligns well; other times major gaps are revealed. Our systematic inventory of local Jewish offerings and the consumption of them helps you make data-informed decisions and investments.
