The Benefits of Engaging Non-Professional Jewish Educators
By Miles L. Roger
Miles knows that it is equally important to have quality teachers in our classrooms and administrative staff who are committed to the cause of Jewish education.
The current world of Jewish education is very different from that of twenty years ago. We are no longer living in a Jewish world where the Jewish educator at our local synagogue or Federation agency is the one with the answers. No longer are we dependent on catalogs from Israel or New York to provide us with materials for our classrooms. Our ties with Israel are not to create a Jewish state, but to maintain a strong one. This is no longer your parent’s world of Jewish education.
