It is not clear whether the American Jewish community can marshal the necessary resources to revitalize itself through Jewish education. In order to assess what the community can do, both financially and pragmatically, far greater clarity is needed about the dimensions of the challenge. This paper begins the process by drawing together some existing data and projecting what it would cost to enhance key sectors on the field of Jewish education - Day Schools, Supplementary Education and some forms of Informal Education.
