Rabbi Nicki Greninger
In this session, we will explore the innovative, successful, nationally-recognized approach to Hebrew education at Temple Isaiah in Lafayette, CA. Rabbi Greninger will begin by describing the process of change (when and how the community developed their new model) and then engage participants in a conversation about the new program - including successes, challenges, ongoing changes, and ways to adapt this model in your own community. For more information about Temple Isaiah’s Hebrew program in advance of the session, see http://www.temple-isaiah.org/education/jquest-hebrew/
