Abstract:

The advocacy arm of CAJE conducted research in order to understand the problems and potential solutions associated with salary, benefits, recognition and respect of Jewish educators. The research shows that these professionals are being inadequately compensated and do not feel well-regarded within the community. The authors warn that unless these issues are resolved, the severe shortage of Jewish educators will continue to limit the potential of Jewish education.
