National Research

Amplify the first-ever national data set on Jewish teen well-being. 

How are Jewish American teens really doing? 

The first-ever national research on Jewish teen well-being will assess American Jewish teens in relation to their mental health in this pivotal moment.

In April-May 2024, we invited 7th-12th graders across the country to share their experiences in an anonymous survey. This comprehensive research will provide a snapshot of Jewish teen well-being today and help us better understand the intersection of Jewish culture and tradition, family dynamics, and systemic communal influences. It will provide insight to the sources of stress and strategies for thriving that characterize life among American Jewish teenagers.

We are excited for the Jewish community to benefit from this research, ultimately raising awareness to what young people are experiencing and inspiring solutions that meet the needs of Jewish teens.

Check back here in fall 2024 when the findings will be made publicly available.
