Jewish Communal Professional Compensation Survey Initiated

For the past three years, the Forward has conducted an annual salary survey of executives of Jewish communal organizations. To date, no survey has been conducted to gather similar data about employees up and down the Jewish professional ladder. This data, which is largely not available in public records, is critical not only for professionals seeking and holding jobs in the Jewish communal world, but also for employers who aim to retain and grow talent and strengthen the Jewish communal infrastructure. That’s why we – a group of NYU alumni – seek your help!

We have created this survey to gather compensation data from across the field. Please fill out this survey as accurately as possible and share it with your friends. It will only take 5 minutes, and will be open until June 25th. A special thank you to the following people who took the time to help us fine-tune this survey: Pearl Beck, Ph.D., Director of Evaluation at Ukeles Associates; Shifra Bronznick, Founding President of Advancing Women Professionals and the Jewish Community; Professor Steven M. Cohen; David M. Elcott, Ph.D., the Henry and Marilyn Taub Professor in Practice of Public Service and Leadership at NYU/Wagner; and Rabbi Joanna Samuels, Director of Strategic Initiatives at Advancing Women Professionals and the Jewish Community. Their guidance is greatly appreciated.
