The Institute for Jewish & Community Research conducts on-going research in three areas:

Religious Prejudice and the Security of the Jewish Community
The Institute conducts research on religious prejudice using surveys and other tools. We specifically examine anti-Semitism and anti-Israelism in America's educational systems, assessing how prejudice impacts elementary, secondary, and higher education.

The Institute engages in research about megagifts in American philanthropy, giving to higher education, and philosophies of giving. We also specialize in research about Jewish philanthropy, including foundations and motivations for giving to Jewish causes.

The Growth and Vitality of the Jewish People
We study the demography of the Jewish people, looking at how Jewish identity is defined and expressed. We examine issues relating to inter-marriage, conversion and the racial and ethnic diversity of the Jewish people.
