The Mandell and Madeleine Berman Foundation announced yesterday a $1 million grant for the purposes of conducting a national Jewish population study next year, which would be the first such study since the one conducted in 2000-2001.

The grant, awarded to the Berman Jewish Policy Archive at New York University’s Wagner School of Public Policy, is a challenge grant, meaning the research team must raise the rest of the study’s budget of about $2 million by Sept. 1. The foundation also supports the policy archive.

109 Years of American Jewish History Goes Digital

The Journal of Jewish Communal Service (JJCS) is now available in digital form on the Web thanks to the work of the Berman Jewish Policy Archive at NYU's Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service. The BJPA was established through generous support from the philanthropist Mandell ("Bill") Berman of Detroit and the Charles H. Revson Foundation.

Steven M. Cohen Promotes "Meaningless Jewish Associations"

Regular readers of this blog know that I have, on more than one occasion, criticized sociologist Steven “Intermarriage Is The Greatest Threat” Cohen. But to tell you the truth I’m starting to feel a little sorry for the guy.

While I doubt he cares about my blog missives, and while there is of course something noble about sticking to your opinions even when they are no longer fashionable, Cohen, who is a professor at Hebrew Union College and director of the Berman Jewish Policy Archive, seems to be increasingly out of step with the non-Orthodox American Jewish community.
