Claiming Your Role: Navigating Today's Story as a Jewish Educator

M²: The Institute for Experiential Jewish Education
November 20, 2023

Join our partners at M2: The Institute for Jewish Experiential Education for a webinar on our role as Jewish educators in this moment of crisis.  

In a live survey, 90% of Jewish educators agreed that they have a critical role to play in this moment. What exactly is that role though? In this workshop, we will use an educational resource to help us thoughtfully name, navigate, and own the roles we are holding (historian, therapist, theologian etc).
