Why We Do What We Do: Motivation, Choice, and Career

Ilana Aisen, CEO of JPro, and Dr. Arielle Levites, Managing Director of CASJE

It’s clear that most Jewish professionals and educators aren’t “in it for the money.” What then, is the motivation behind the career choices of many in our sector? Is this work a “calling?” Do we think of this as a career or a job? And what are the implications of those distinctions on how recruit, retain, and develop talent? Join Ilana Aisen, CEO of JPro, and Dr. Arielle Levites, Managing Director of CASJE (Collaborative for Applied Studies in Jewish Education) to discuss the Career Trajectories of Jewish Educators Study, the recently-released multi-strand investigation of the recruitment, retention and development of Jewish educators, and to dive into these issues as they relate to the entire Jewish nonprofit workforce.
