This study reports on a survey of the "'innovation sector" of Jewish life: small, start-up nonprofits that have become more prevalent in American Jewish life. In light of the economic climate, the authors and funders of this report hold that support for these start-ups must continue as the Jewish communal landscape is redefined. The initial release of these findings does not include policy implications or recommendations.
