ASSJ-NRJE Experts Database

Welcome to the database of experts and researchers who focus on contemporary Jewish practices, cultures, institutions, and communities. The database is a joint project of the Association for the Social Scientific Study of Jewry (ASSJ) and the Network for Research in Jewish Education (NRJE).

The purposes of this database are:

  1. To facilitate interaction and collaboration within and between the fields of social science of Jewry and Jewish education.

  2. To enable Jewish organizations to find researchers who are interested in conducting applied research.

  3. To enable journalists to find experts who are willing to be interviewed.

  4. To enable synagogues, JCCs, and other Jewish institutions to find scholars to give lectures/presentations.
