For the past 25 years, the Covenant Foundation has been committed to identifying and championing the most promising educators and projects in the field of Jewish education.
With the constant goal of seeking out sustainable ideas and rooting them firmly in the landscape of Jewish life and learning, the Foundation has seeded the field with new visions, experiences, and resources with far-reaching impact.
Currently, we are interested in learning more about the best practices and successes of inventive programs happening at Jewish Family Service bureaus across the country.
At JFS Seattle, for example, Project Kavod is creating an alternative educational and organizational space for JFS officers, employees, volunteers and other stakeholders to discuss religious, philosophical and cultural concepts and texts with each other, within and across all levels of the JFS structure, and to create a shared language and consciousness.
This hugely successful program is reinventing Jewish education – bringing talk of Talmud to the water cooler and encouraging JFS educators and staff members to live their values both inside and outside of the office.
We want to know what’s happening at the JFS in your city. Perhaps it’s a family education program, a social justice campaign or a creative professional development strategy. Tell us about it, so that we can collect your stories and best practices, and then amplify the good work you’ve helped us discover.
Reach out to us at [email protected]. We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
