With courses in topics ranging from Ed-Tech to Mental Health & Wellness to Judaic Studies and more, find the right workshop to enhance your teaching skills for the next school year. All workshops will be held remotely. Please note that the majority of these workshops are only open to Jewish Day School/Yeshiva educators in NYC and NYS. Space is limited, so register today! 

All workshops have a cost unless otherwise indicated. No one will be turned down due to cost. If you have any issues making the full payment or have general questions, please email Amanda Srere.

This summer we are pleased to launch several educator networks for Jewish day school educators in NYC and NYS. Networks are ongoing, year-long professional development commitments that are structured differently than individual or series workshops. Network facilitators are experts in project-based learning, positive psychology, gender equity in the workforce, and arts education. They come from HAFTR, The Idea School, Yeshivah of Flatbush’s Joel Braverman High School, and other leading Jewish educational institutions in greater NYC. There is no cost to join a network.
