Program 1

The Partnership carries out its work through three Divisions ? Research and Evaluation, Programming and the Resource Center. The Research and Evaluation Division generates and disseminates the knowledge needed to understand the needs and realities of Jewish life today. This is done through conducting original research and evaluating the implementation and outcomes of Partnership and community programs. The Programming Division uses this knowledge to develop and implement innovative initiatives in three Program Areas: Early Childhood, Youth and Teen, and Adult Learning. Within these areas, special programs focus on the special needs population and on enriching Jewish parenting. The Resource Center provides textual, media and technology resources to institutions and individuals throughout the community, offering a central address for best practices and Judaic materials in the Washington area.
