Atlanta is engaged in boldly reimagining Jewish education in our community, beginning with what we call part-time, or “supplemental” Jewish education. With the support of a generous funder we have launched The Jewish Education Collaborative (JEC), which is elevating Jewish education to a top communal priority.

JEC’s central challenge is this:

  • How do we create meaningful Jewish experiences and launch more youth on lifelong Jewish journeys?
  • How can we make education a priority for today’s families?
  • How can we make Atlanta a thrilling model for innovation in Jewish education?

JEC’s Education Agenda Prioritizes:

  • Improving teacher quality & investing in talent
  • Exploring innovation
  • Strengthening collaboration and creating networks
  • Improving where and how Jewish learning is experienced
  • Changing perception about Jewish education
