By partnering with synagogue schools, camps, JCC’s, Hillels, and new educational models, JTeachNOW fellows will help to reimagine and create an inspiring and engaging learning environment for their learners to thrive as both Jews and human beings in the 21st century.
This is a two year program in which fellows will learn together throughout the year and work as full time educators in congregational schools, as well as in other models of Jewish education. Learning will include pedagogy and Jewish content knowledge with a focus on innovation in the world of education today. Additionally, fellows will work in camps and other immersive Jewish learning environments during the summer to further develop their learning and understanding of experiential education and the power of these kinds of settings. At least two fellows will be assigned to the same setting and each will be paired with a mentor. Principals, directors, and clergy will also participate in learning with their fellows periodically throughout the two years with the goal of creating a supporting partnership as they work together to bring new ideas and innovation into their setting.
