Opportunities for Involvement

Educators from day schools and yeshivot in greater New York City will participate in a day of professional development and learning at the annual Yeshiva Day School Conference.
I've been impressed with how this agency has pivoted quickly to support educators and youth professionals not just in New York, but throughout the world, as we collectively navigate and experiment with distance Jewish learning and engagement.
I am grateful to have the support of The Jewish Education Project. It has provided me with larger networks to feel connected to and individualized support.
