2019 Cincy Community Study Begins; Your Voice Needed

Beginning February 2019, the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati and the Jewish Foundation of Cincinnati are conducting a study of members of the Jewish community in Greater Cincinnati. The goal is to find out characteristics, behaviors, attitudes, and needs of community members to inform future programming and planning for the entire community. This study is being conducted by an experienced research team at Brandeis University. Starting in February, you may be contacted by letter, phone, or email by the Cohen Center for Modern Jewish Studies at Brandeis University and its call center at the University of New Hampshire with an invitation to participate in the survey. Because this is a scientific survey with a defined sample frame, you may not receive one of these calls or emails; however, if you do, we encourage you to respond and participate in this important project on behalf of the entire community.

 If you are contacted, the Caller ID will say UNH Survey Center (603-397-0635)–UNH is University of New Hampshire. Any letter you receive about this will come from: Brandeis University, Maurice and Marilyn Cohen Center for Modern Jewish Studies, 415 South Street, MS 014, Waltham, MA 02453-2728.

The principal investigator of the 2019 Cincinnati Jewish Community Study is interviewed here–Dr. Janet Krasner Aronson of Brandeis University–about the study. She said, "the study aims to provide a voice to all of the members of the community—not only the most engaged, but everyone—about how they participate in all dimensions of Jewish life."
