Over the past decade the Council for Initiatives in Jewish Education, now the Mandel Foundation, conducted a national survey of Jewish educational personnel in several communities: Milwaukee, Baltimore, and Atlanta. The survey documented Jewish educators' background and training, rewards and benefits, career patterns, and workplace conditions. Understanding this survey can aid the Jewish community in establishing a policy toward recruiting people into the field of Jewish education.
