Workshops for Jewish Educators

Building from the success of our signature professional development program, the Institute for Educators, JWA now brings face-to-face teacher training on the road. In an effort to meet the needs of more educators in diverse communities, JWA will be holding workshops in several different cities during the 2013–2014 school year. Workshop programs will be tailored to the needs of educators in those communities. If you are interested in hosting a workshop in your city or region, contact Paula Sinclair, Director of Programs and Partnerships.

Here is what past participants have said...

The workshop will catalyze important change for my school's curricula. I was introduced to so many rich primary sources that I want to share with students. I am excited to think about ways to distill what I've learned into lesson plans that help students connect to the work for justice done by previous generations, and inspire them to think about the complex choices involved in doing that work today.”

I had heard about the Jewish Women’s Archive for many years and seen their materials but was completely unaware of the depth and breadth of their materials and how creatively they were contextualized for the classroom.

At first I had to hold on to my seat, but it was energizing to have East Coast energy come in here. Every year it seems like there is so much more about the Jewish world and Jewish education. JWA is right on and dead center.”

The 2013 workshops were generously funded by the Dorot Foundation, the Crown Family Philanthropies, and the Taube Foundation for Jewish Life and Culture.
