The world of Jewish education is changing.

Teachers can customize a learning program to a learner’s specific needs and interests. Learners are self-directed and can find content everywhere. The line between teacher and learner is blurring. Old models are being discarded and individuals and organizations are exploring and experimenting with new ones.

How do we know what works?

Research * Development * Testing * Evaluation * Reporting

Jewish organizations are ready to try new models of Jewish education that engage the whole family, meet the learners’ needs and build strong connections and community. Figuring out the best way to do this takes careful planning, targeted pilot efforts and clear assessment. One size will not fit all, but we can all learn from each experiment.

Contact Jewish Education Lab when:

  • Your organization is in a planning  stage, looking to learn first about the field and the needs in your community, not wanting to reinvent the wheel, and trying to focus lots of ideas and come to consensus on an approach
  • You need help developing your plan into a program, conference, curriculum or product with goals that can be evaluated
  • You would like to gather data that would let you know how your effort has succeeded or could be improved, with recommendations for next steps
  • You are ready to tell the story of what you’ve learned through internal presentations, articles, blog posts, podcasts or other media

Why keep doing things the same way? Let’s take the fist step towards something better.

  1. Rabbi Craig Axler cited your blog and your experience in his sermon tonight at Temple Isaiah about the 25th Anniversary of the march on Washington for Soviet Jewry! Your Dad and I observed later that working together, we can make a difference…and you may not know at the time the full impact of that selfless act for the common good. What an inspiring story. Shabbat Shalom, Betsy Singer
