About In-SITE-ful Journeys

In-SITE-ful Journeys engage and connect colleagues through “site visits” to area schools, virtual learning opportunities, and field trips. Site visits allow educators to observe schools in session or tour other educational settings where leaders are paving the way towards innovative practices in early childhood education and engagement with families. In-SITE-ful Journeys inspire educators to consider their role in creating transformative Jewish experiences and environments where children and families can thrive.
