Adapting Podcast: A Candid Conversation aboutÂ Jewish Earlyâ€‹â€‹â€‹â€‹â€‹ â€‹â€‹â€‹â€‹â€‹â€‹Childhood Education
Does Jewish early childhood education have the potential to radically transform the Jewish community? What impact would federally funded early childhood education have on Jewish early childhood centers in the United States? What exactly is Jewish early childhood education? This week’s guest is Anna Hartman, recipient of the 2021 Covenant Award for her pioneering work in the field of Jewish early childhood education. Anna shares the story of how she first found herself in a classroom, what that means for the field, and what she’s doing to empower Jewish educators in her hometown, Chicago, and across the country.
"We have such an incredible gift here of Jewish early childhood [education]. I no longer think it is negative or unhelpful to state the truths about the field. We need a lot more support to make this work."
