JData provides essential information on the changing size and shape of Jewish education throughout North America. Our statistics, reports, and tools support the work of community leaders and educators who transmit Jewish knowledge from one generation to the next.

Who We Serve


Individual organizations use JData to create a confidential, ongoing profile, with information about their enrollment, budget, staffing, and governance. They can then generate detailed reports for planning, recruitment, communications, and fundraising—all at no cost.

JData helps federations, central agencies, foundations, movements, and other umbrella organizations work more efficiently and effectively with their constituent schools and camps. JData's tools help them monitor comparative trends in enrollment, capacity, fundraising, and other critical indicators of organizational health.
