Students today face an entirely different reality than previous generations. With information of all kinds available at their fingertips, it is no longer the primary goal of congregational education to provide facts and figures for their learners. Rather, it is much more important that children build strong relationships with one another, engage in meaningful Jewish experiences that leave them curious to learn more, and become equipped to apply Jewish learning to their everyday lives. Education that meets these needs is sophisticated and complex.
Jewish Learning Venture believes that in order to support families in their efforts to make Judaism meaningful and relevant for themselves, we also must support congregational educators in learning about and adapting as many methodologies for engaging families as possible. We provide these services through professional development opportunities, special-needs inclusion training, the annual Yom Limmud Conference, and customized consultation and services.
