Building Jewish Education

Ascending the Mountain of Innovation: North American Conference on Reinventing Religious Schools

Join with other Religious School Directors, Rabbis, and lay leaders at a day-long gathering focused on innovation in religious school education! We will meet in Los Angeles on Sunday, June 11 to learn from Jewish educational leaders and change agents. Come with a congregational team to fully benefit from the experience: maximizing the number of sessions your community will participate in, develop real partners for innovation at your synagogue, and for Los Angeles congregations only, receive a consultation with one of our consultants at no additional cost!

For LA-based Directors of Religious Schools, there will be a pre-conference workshop on Monday, April 24. This will be a time for educators to gather tools that will help them, their teams, and their congregations prepare for the June 11 conference so they can maximize the value of the day.

This conference is a partnership between the URJ, HUC-JIR, and the BJELA, funded by the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles.
