Pathways to Thriving in Jewish Education Network

Facilitator: Rabbi David Levy
Format: Virtual

About this Network:

All good education begins with big ideas. After a multiyear process, we’ve created MAP, My Aspirations Playbook, which recognizes the big ideas that can lead to a thriving Jewish life. In this network, we will explore the four dimensions of MAP in detail, and consider how this tool can help practitioners and organizations find a pathway to a more meaningful Jewish educational experience for our K-8 learners and their families. Check out MAP here


Additional Information:

This network is designed for education directors in a part time setting. We will meet virtually every six to eight weeks unpacking a different aspect of the MAP architecture. We are excited to welcome new participants from across the country in this nationwide network. 


About the Facilitator:

Rabbi David Levy

My route to becoming a Rabbi was certainly not a straight line! My first step was on Masada at 5:30 am on my 2001 Birthright Israel trip. As I watched the sun rise out of the Dead Sea, I felt connected to the Jewish people in a way I never had before. That moment catalyzed a trajectory that culminated three years later in a call to HUC-JIR from my cubicle at GE. In between those two moments, yes I got my Bachelors degree in Information Systems, but more importantly I fell in love with the wisdom of the Jewish tradition, and helping individual Jews and Jewish communities thrive. That passion has only grown over these past twenty years as I continue to invest in my own learning and growth, and create opportunities for communities and individuals to do the same. I live in Westchester, NY with my wife Kate, our three sons, Benji, Micah, and Ezra and our dog Gizmo.
