New pathways: An evaluation of two pilot initiatives serving Jewish families with young children in suburban Boston
Combined Jewish Philanthropies of Greater Boston has developed a strategy and provided funding for two initiatives that were designed to encourage families with young children to become more engaged in Jewish life. The initiatives were launched in Metrowest Boston, consisting of 26 western suburban communities, and the South Area, consisting of 34 southern suburban communities. This report presents an evaluation of these two initiatives. Section 1 discusses the origins of the initiatives, the demographics and institutional history of the two geographic areas, the design of the initiatives, and the methodological approach used to evaluate them. Section 2 presents the findings, and Section 3 offers recommendations.
