Professor Harriet Hartman of Rowan University has created a Learning Module which is designed to introduce students and scholars to the analysis of Jewish survey data in a relatively easy-to-use format, utilizing some of the local Jewish community study and national Jewish survey data which are available at the Berman Jewish DataBank.The module is a self-learning, self-directed activity which focuses on exploring Jewish identity (religious identity and ethnic identity). The module’s exercises invite thinking about Jewish identity and exploring ways in which Jewish identity is expressed. The activities within the Learning Module are designed to help users learn how to read survey data to understand and interpret Jewish identity, to help users explore some of the differences among Jewish persons with different denominational identifications (or none at all), and to compare findings in one Jewish community study to findings from other Jewish community studies.
