Berman Jewish Policy Archive @ NYU Wagner
July 2014
From Prof. Steven M. Cohen

Dear friends,

In cooperation with the Jewish Journal of Sociology, our good friends in the UK, we are pleased to present this review of the year of Jewish social research: 2013. Included are 75 pieces of empirical research (both quantitative and qualitative) that appeared in the 2013 calendar year and are included in the Berman Jewish Policy Archive.

Although in the annals of Jewish social research 2013 may go down as the Year of the Pew Study, truth be told, recent social scientific research on contemporary Jewish life encompassed a number of fields and sub-disciplines. Population and community studies abounded, as did studies in Jewish education, program evaluation, and related areas.

Of course, your comments and additional contributions are invited. Should we have missed any research published in 2013, please do send it along.

Happy reading, happy thinking,

Prof. Steven M. Cohen
Director, BJPA
