JMAP is a Jewish Community Study in Hartford, CT, that helps us navigate the future by understanding our current community (that includes you!) and its needs. The study includes Greater Hartford in its broadest sense — including Hartford County and more, from Vernon and Manchester to Rocky Hill to Meriden to Middletown to Canton and New Hartford to Enfield. Co-sponsored by the Jewish Community Foundation and Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford.
In June 2016, 1,251 respondents ages 18-99 completed an online survey. Respondents included in the detailed findings identified themselves or a spouse as Jewish, and lived, worked, prayed, or played in the Greater Hartford region. This data was made public in spring 2017, and many agencies, synagogues, schools and community groups have used the data to identify concerns, brainstorm solutions, and convene stakeholders to explore further.
In June 2018, the JMAP dashboard launched, which aggregates data from agencies and synagogues across the community. The dashboard will be updated annually, with new data so that we can track our progress on key issues over time.
In spring/summer 2019, JMAP will conduct a follow-up mini-survey to track change since 2016. JMAP is designed to mimic a Census, where the big Census takes place every ten years, with follow-up surveys in between.
