Part of the series, “Changemakers: Conversations with JTS Alumni Creating the Jewish Future”
Thursday, May 6
4:00-5:00 p.m. ET
Because American Jewish families rely on synagogues to educate their children, religious schools must be excellent. Join us for a conversation with four innovative leaders who are reimagining learning and engagement in synagogue religious schools as we discuss: What new approaches nurture Jewish identity? How do we create deep, joyful Jewish connections?
This discussion is for educators, parents, and anyone interested in Jewish education.
