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.
