JPSYCH

Over the past 20 years, social scientists have demonstrated that many religious beliefs and practices are linked to mental health and functioning. However, most of the existing empirical findings and related theory in this area do not apply specifically to Jews. JPSYCH was started by David H. Rosmarin in 2001 as an on-line laboratory to directly investigate the role of Jewish religiousness in psychological wellbeing. Since its inception, JPSYCH has enabled nearly 3000 individuals from across the globe to participate in 10 empirical studies on Jewish spirituality/religion and psychological variables. Data collected from JPSYCH studies has enabled researchers in the United States, Canada, Europe and Israel to better understand the relationships between Judaism and mental health.
