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.

Instead of sending kids and young adults to Israel or trying to figure out how to make Judaism “relevant” to them, maybe all Jewish organizations need to do to secure the future is to get everyone singing from the same page.

Literally.

That would seem to be the message of a new survey of Jewish choral singers, billed as the first ever, conducted by the Zamir Choral Foundation.
