By Steven M. Cohen, Dasee Berkowitz

Andrea and Charles Bronfman Philanthropies, March 22, 2009

This study explores the motivations, characteristics, and concerns of Jewish philanthropists who support innovative and independent initiatives in Jewish life. The study also reports on these donors' relationships to major issues, established organizations, and Jewish social entrepreneurs. It assesses the impact of the economic downturn on both Jewish and universal giving and concludes with recommendations for bridging the disconnect between donors and young Jewish innovators.
