Network: Models of Jewish Education (2016-17)

Which model of Jewish education is right for us?

Facilitated by Cyd Weissman, Assistant Vice President for Innovation and Impact at RRC

For five educational teams of at least two participants each. Teams can include a combination of professional staff and lay leaders. Each member of the team should have been in their role for at least one year. A spirit of experimentation is required.

Tuesdays 1 p.m.-2:15 p.m. EST – Nov. 22, Dec. 20, Jan. 24, Feb. 14, March 28 & May 16

Colleagues and experts will share their experiences in launching new models of Jewish education that speak to today’s learners. New models of Jewish learning are expanding across the country to include education that is based in the home, in museums, on the streets or online, around Shabbat or depends deeply on family engagement. Which one is right for your community? Are you ready to find out and start implementation? This network will enable your team to identify assets and goals; launch pilot programs; and support and assess implementation. A seasoned educational consultant will guide you through the project.
