How the 1990 National Jewish Population Survey Was Used by Federation Professionals for Jewish Continuity Purposes

By Hayim Herring

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Spring 2000

This is a descriptive study on the self-reported use of the 1990 NJPS by seven categories of federation professionals and the likely utilization of NJPS 2000 by executive, continuity, and planning directors. Compared to the 1970 NJPS, the Council of Jewish Federations (CJF) made great strides with regard to the utilization of the 1990 NJPS. However, it did not distinguish between distributing the findings of the 1990 NJPS and disseminating its findings. For the NJPS 2000 to be utilized more effectively, the professional and volunteer leadership of the United Jewish Communities should already be incorporating principles of knowledge dissemination and utilization.
