IMPACT OF JECEI: CENTER'S SELF-STUDY, EVALUTION & FUND DEVELOPMENT
Although JECEI was just beginning to take root around the country when we had to shift from a service model to an on-line site, a growing body of evidence indicates that JECEI has been leading an increasing number of families to long-term Jewish learning and living.
Studies analyzing date from parents in JECEI and non-JECEI schools have found that, across the board, JECEI parents:
- increased their celebration of Shabbat;
- increased their celebration of Jewish holidays;
- increased their contributions to Jewish organizations; and,
- expressed greater interest in sending their children to intensive Jewish educational programs in the future, including: Jewish camps, Israel experiences, and day schools.
