Israel Education Collaboratory

Israel: we willed it. It's no longer a dream; so what do we do now? Engage with other day school leaders to refine the long-term vision of Israel education in your school. Together, share your goals, celebrate what is working, identify some challenges, investigate models, and consider next steps for productive collaboration. Led by Judith Talesnick, Director of Professional Learning and Growth. 

Federal Funding for Jewish Day Schools: You're Not Dreaming

Sara Seligson, Managing Director of Day Schools and Yeshivot & School Food Services, and Yocheved Belsky, Director of Private School Partnerships for Catapult Learning, will share how to access federal funding for professional development, technology, school safety, and well-rounded educational opportunities like STEM programs, college and career counseling, arts, civics, Advanced Placement, health, and physical education, among others.
