As found in The Jewish Education Project’s 2019-2020 Census, the “top goal across all supplementary schools was to help students develop a sense of belonging to the Jewish people.” Join together to define “belonging”, determine goals for your workplace to foster stronger cultures of belonging, and walk away with tangible tools to accomplish these goals.
