Welcome to the Berman Jewish DataBank

The Berman Jewish DataBank @ The Jewish Federations of North America offers open access to hundreds of quantitative studies of North American Jewry. We proudly partner with the Berman Jewish Policy Archive @ NYU Wagner and the Center for Judaic Studies and Contemporary Jewish Life at UConn. Our stakeholders include Jewish Federations and communal organizations, researchers, educators and students, foundations and philanthropists, social change agents, the media, and interested individuals.
