Westchester Innovators

Facilitator: Rabbi Jennifer Goldsmith
Format: Virtual

About this Network:

As participants of the Westchester Innovators’ Network, you along with other educators will have a chance to wrestle with what is next in Jewish education. Participants will grapple with setting new visions, building teams, getting buy-in, assessing past learning, and other key concepts and themes that can help direct programs towards an innovative future. As we learn from each other, participants will share highlights of their work, raise issues of concern, and collaboratively create solutions.

Additional Information:

  • This network is open to new members but requires an initial conversation with the facilitator.
  • This network is designed for congregational educators.
  • We will begin as a Virtual Network and will consider meeting in person in 2021, if possible.
