Performance metrics reflect specific dimensions of community life that show the extent to which Toronto is a thriving, caring, connected Jewish community. Performance metrics are organized under five themes:
Jewish Engagement – Active engagement of children and adults in being Jewish, in Judaism, and in Jewish community life is an important dimension of a connected Jewish community.
Caring Community – Traditional Jewish values such as acts of loving-kindness (gemilut chasadim), are reflected in community-sponsored social services.
Israel Connections – Jewish Torontonians connect to Israel through personal commitment, communal involvement, philanthropy and visiting and living in Israel.
Advocacy and Volunteerism – Jews contribute their time and energy through advocacy and voluntarism within the GTA and beyond.
Communal Capacity – Strong leadership, generous philanthropy, as well as an efficient and effective communal structure are important dimensions of a thriving Jewish community.
Modules are subdivisions of themes and include groups of related metrics.
The Dashboard is being developed in an iterative approach — successive rounds build on the lessons learned in the previous round. Not all modules are being presented in the first iteration of the Dashboard.
