Results of a new study conducted by Berman Jewish Policy Archive revealed the significant pay gap among Jewish communal professionals. The study found that while women make up 2/3 of Jewish communal professionals, they earn an average of $28,000 less than men. When the study controlled for “age, years in the field, level of responsibility, hours worked, and degrees earned, women’s salaries still trail men’s by about $20,000.” [eJewish Philanthropy]
