Dear all,

I’d like to invite any Jewish adoptive parents to participate in an online survey we’re conducting on adoption and Jewish identity.  Available at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/jewishadoptiveparents , the survey should take approximately 30-45 minutes to complete, depending on the number of adopted children in a family. 

If you are not a Jewish adoptive parent but know someone who is, please forward the project description and survey link below. 

Thanks very much!

Jennifer Sartori
Co-Director, Adoption and Jewish Identity Project

Adoption and Jewish Identity Project

Are you (or is someone you know) a Jewish adoptive parent who is raising or has raised a child to identify at least in part as Jewish? 

If so, you can help us learn more about the real-life experiences of Jewish adoptive families by completing the Adoption and Jewish Identity Project’s on-line survey for parents (or by forwarding the link to Jewish adoptive parents you know, as well as to others who can help spread the word). 

Available at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/jewishadoptiveparents , the survey should take approximately 30-45 minutes to complete, depending on the number of adopted children in a family. 

The Adoption and Jewish Identity Project is dedicated to improving the lives of Jewish adoptive families by creating broader understanding of the unique religious, cultural, and identity issues they face. 

Over the last few decades, secrecy in adoption has become less common, while adoption across national, racial, and ethnic lines has created new kinds of “blended” families.  These shifts are changing the experiences of Jewish adoptive families. 

The results of this research will be used in a book for Jewish adoptive families or those considering adoption, as well as for adoption professionals and Jewish communal workers. 

For more information and for project updates, visit us on Facebook.

The Adoption and Jewish Identity Project is directed by Dr. Jennifer Sartori and Dr. Jayne Guberman.  Sartori is Associate Director of Jewish Studies at Northeastern University.  Guberman is an independent oral historian and consultant.  Both Jenny and Jayne are also adoptive mothers.
