News Release
High metro response to Jewish "perception survey" spawns statewide distribution - MEDIA ADVISORY - 03/27/18

High metro response to Jewish "perception survey" spawns statewide distribution
Probono gift of national firm measures needs and perceptions, first survey of Jews in Oregon in nearly a decade.

WHO: Chabad Center for Jewish Life in Oregon, dedicated to a mission of serving, engaging and connecting individuals who identify with the Jewish community has received an unprecedented response to a survey about the thoughts, perspectives and needs of the Portland individuals who self-identify as Jews. A third-party, maintains the objectivity and anonymity of all survey submissions.

WHAT, WHY and WHERE: A new statewide link: https://mindreader.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_b4vX1vwBuUo5zYV?Source=MR
for the survey for those outside of the Metro area has been added as of March 27. The Portland-only survey, with over 500 responses to a small email list inspired Chabad to seek survey responses to areas served by all Oregon Chabad centers -- Ashland, Bend, Eugene, Hillsboro and Salem. The Oregon centers serve significant populations of Jews and those identified and or supporting the mission of Chabad.

"If we are to share the joy, meaning and relevance of Judaism for Jews and affiliates in Oregon, it is essential that we hear their wants, need and perceptions. Every individual is important, and each survey collected is valuable to us," says Rabbi Motti Wilhelm, executive director of Chabad Center for Jewish Life.

Located in all 50 states and at last count with over 200,000 members in the U.S., Chabad is the possibly the largest and most widespread Jewish movement in the world. Chabad institutions provide outreach to unaffiliated Jews and humanitarian aid, as well as religious, cultural and educational activities at Chabad-run community centers, synagogues, schools, camps. Oregon Chabad also provides social services from counseling, food banks and other supports for individuals and families in need. The nonprofit organization is supported exclusively though locally raised funds.

The survey measures community perception and need. An executive summary will be posted on: www.chabadoregon a few weeks after all data are analyzed.

WHEN & HOW: The survey has a March 30 deadline, click on this link: https://mindreader.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_b4vX1vwBuUo5zYV?Source=MR. The 15-minute survey closes at sundown, 7:36 p.m. before the first night of Passover. This important Jewish festival reenacts the Exodus from Egypt and is an eight-day celebration of liberation from slavery and freedom.
