Study Opportunity: Jewish Spiritual Exercises and Wellbeing

Do you want to see if certain religious practices may help you flourish? Are you curious about the link between “religious” practices and “spiritual” practices?

Rabbi Geoff Mitelman of Sinai and Synapses and Dr. David DeSteno of Northeastern University’s Social Emotions Lab are seeking participants to take part in a survey study on religious practices in everyday life. Participation in the study will take place over the course of two months, and eligible participants who complete the entire study will receive $150 in addition to a bonus valued between $14 and $25. The project is funded by Templeton World Charity Foundation.

Eligible participants will be asked to:

(1) Complete a 25-minute survey (Main Survey 1)

(2) Learn about and incorporate specific spiritual/religious practices into your daily life and/or monitor your everyday spiritual practices

(3) Complete a 2-minute daily survey each day for 4 weeks

(4) Complete a second 20-minute survey at the end of the 4 weeks (Main Survey 2)

(5) Complete a third 20-minute survey one month later (Main Survey 3)

If you are over the age of 18, and reside in the United States, you may be eligible to participate, based on your responses to a short screening survey.

Participation in the study is entirely voluntary, and if you participate, you are free to withdraw from the study at any time without penalty.

To determine your eligibility, please take the two-minute survey here.
