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
Atlanta Day Of Learning With The Jewish Education Project
November 11 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Throughout 2020 and 2021, our learners – and our organizations – have experienced trauma as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. The challenges we continue to face can be overwhelming, but we cannot afford to spend an entire year in a holding pattern. A time of struggle and change can also be a time for progress. In the field of psychology, the concept of “Post-Traumatic Growth” proves that it’s possible to transform, to grow stronger, more driven, and more resilient, because of the trauma we face. At this online day of learning, co-facilitated by The Jewish Education Project and the Jewish Education Collaborative of Greater Atlanta, we will explore how the framework of Post-Traumatic Growth can help both learners and our institutions turn challenges into catalysts for more impactful Jewish learning. Through experiential and forward-thinking discussions, we will push ourselves and our organizations to identify the tools we need for reinvention.
