The Jewish Education Project is proud to have over 30 educator networks that serve as laboratories for experimentation, innovation and centers of emotional and professional support.  Our networks would not be hubs of creativity and collaboration without a dedicated group of network leaders. Our network leaders are influencers within their networks. They take on leadership roles, connect their peers to external resources, and help facilitators plan and lead network meetings. These educators are the first to take risks and implement new methods at their institutions.


In this new series, “Network Leader Spotlight,” we will honor Network leaders for the wisdom they share, and the dedication, time and energy they put into their creating communities that cultivate community and love of learning. We are starting this series by profiling Mindy Gold (EdTechMMG), Sharon Solomon (Temple Beth Sholom) , Rabbi Gary Greene (Marathon Jewish Center) and Naomi Kachel (Central Synagogue). By publicizing their stories, we hope others will be encouraged to pursue innovation with new vigor and become leaders within The Jewish Education Project Network system.

This continuing network will bring you together with other educators for peer support and critical colleagueship. You will share and get feedback on new ideas you are developing as well as challenges you are confronting. This network is a great opportunity for you to engage in text study, to build new collegial relationships, and to learn about new resources and the work of your fellow educators. Network activities will include: text study; case studies; reflection; protocols for sharing both new innovative learning experiences as well as challenges; and resource sharing. You will identify and work towards a professional goal as well as contribute to the field by designing and/or implementing innovative strategies in your own setting or in the larger community.

A network open to full-time educators (Ass’t Directors/Principals, Family Engagement Professionals, Program Directors, Camp and Youth Professionals, Full-time Teachers) other than Senior educators/directors, meet in-person to share their innovative models and strategies and to explore their own potential to make a difference in the lives of families and learners. Participants lead text studies, share highlights from their work, raise issues of concern, share dilemmas and resources and work in "critical colleague" groups. Each session has a particular focus which is infused throughout. Participants are committed to supporting one another’s growth as professional educators.
