Adoption & Jewish Identity Project adoptee story initiative


The Adoption and Jewish Identity Project is looking for stories!

Are you, or is someone you know, an adoptee between the ages of 18 and 36 who was raised in a family that identified at least in part as Jewish?

In the coming year, we will be gathering stories from young adult adoptees raised in American Jewish families. This effort is part of a research study by the Adoption and Jewish Identity Project (AJIP), which aims to improve the lives of Jewish adoptive families by creating broader understanding of the unique religious, cultural, and identity issues they face.

Any adoptee will be able to submit his/her story either in writing or using other media. We will also be conducting 15-20 in-depth interviews with selected individuals, as well as a number of focus groups. The collected stories will be used for a book about the complex identities of adoptees raised in American Jewish families.

If you are interested in sharing your story, please visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/AJIPAdopteeQuestionnaire to fill out an online questionnaire telling us a little bit about yourself.

If you know others who might be interested in participating, please copy and send them this post, encouraging them to participate.

PLEASE NOTE:
•  We will keep all information provided in these questionnaires completely confidential.  Adoptees will be given the opportunity to choose whether to be identified by name or to remain anonymous in any publications or products that result from this project.
•  Adoptees do not have to identify currently as Jewish in order to participate.

Questions? Please email us at: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

The Adoption and Jewish Identity Project (AJIP) is dedicated to improving the lives of adoptees raised in Jewish families by creating broader understanding of the unique religious, cultural, and identity issues they and their families face. AJIP is directed by Dr. Jennifer Sartori and Dr. Jayne Guberman.  Sartori is Associate Director of Jewish Studies at Northeastern University, and Guberman is an independent scholar and oral history consultant.  Please visit the AJIP Facebook page for project information and updates.
