<p><span>All government support of education is rooted in legislation. In some cases these laws provide funding for children to attend private schools or provide funding to the private schools themselves. The Jewish community has not maximized its ability to receive the entitlements and opportunities available to its day schools . In order to secure government support it is crucial that the educational leadership know the laws and plan collaborative, strategic activities to access entitlements.

<div>When over 35 leaders of local Jewish teen philanthropy programs gathered together at the Jewish Teen Funders Network (JTFN) Seminar on "Best Practices in Jewish Youth Philanthropy" in June 2008, we worked to define the term "Best Practice." We determined that Best Practice isn't about something being the "best and only way," but that it is a process and product of collaboration, networking, challenging assumptions, investigation, and common voices that run throughout the field. Whether you are a seasoned professional in the field or just looking to begin your first youth philanthropy program, we hope that this information will help in your on-going visioning, program improvement, and assessment. In addition, we hope that you will contribute to its on-going development and revision.<br /><a class="doclink" href="index.php?option=com_docman&amp;task=doc_download&amp;gid=444&amp;Itemid ...

<div>American Jewish life has evolved dramatically over the past decade as an entire landscape of new Jewish organizations and initiatives have emerged and taken root. Broad social, cultural, and economic changes have laid the groundwork for new approaches to building and sustaining communal life. Changes in Jewish identity and demography, coupled with new technologies and modes of communication, have opened countless new possibilities for imagining Jewish life in the twenty-first century. In and beyond the Jewish community, a new generation of organic, decentralized, and flexible structures is replacing the twentieth century's mechanical, centralized, and top-down organizations.<br /><br />This report is a follow up to The 2008 Survey of New Jewish Organizations and Jumpstart Research Report 2.09: Key Findings from the 2008 Survey of New Jewish Organizations.

<div>During the past six years, financial assistance has been given to Jewish schools, mainly at the high school level, that have set up special Jewish studies tracks geared to students who entered with little or no previous day school background. The function of preparatory tracks is to narrow the gap, the aim being to fully mainstream these students as quickly as possible. The importance of day schools and the need to reach out to non-day school families do not ensure that the outreach and education will be effective. To better gauge the effectiveness of preparatory tracks, AVI CHAI undertook a survey of the approximately 1,500 students who were enrolled in programs supported<br />by the Foundation during the first five years of the project. This report provides an accurate picture of how 500 Jewish teenagers felt about their day school experience, either shortly after it was completed ...

<div>In the best of economic times, many-probably most-day schools and yeshivas are underfunded and, even so, successfully meet their obligations. They scrimp on support staff and maintenance and cannot provide the enhancements and extra-curricular activities that are routine in public schools and stronger private schools. Of course, there are exceptions: a small number of high-tuition institutions that cater substantially to more affluent families can afford services and salaries that 90% of our day schools cannot.<br /><a class="doclink" href="index.php?option=com_docman&amp;task=doc_download&amp;gid=425&amp;Itemid=362" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.jesna.org/components/com_docman/themes/default/images/icons/16x16/pdf.png" border="0" alt="icon" /> The Impact of the Economic Downturn on Jewish Day Schools (<span class="small">Link</span>)</a><br /><br />Previous research has emph ...
