Jewish Emergent Network to hold Public Conference in 2018
The public aspect of the gathering will include two cohorts of Network Rabbinic Fellows, the clergy, directors and other professionals from all Network communities and funders. At this gathering, the Network will share best practices and big ideas with clergy, staff, lay-leaders and Jewish thought leaders from around the country, and will learn from those participants in turn. The Network also will share interim learnings from its collaborations and evaluation from the first Rabbinic Fellow cohort experience; reflections on initial successes and challenges from the Network communities, funders and evaluators; and insights on the emerging field of Jewish innovation and community building. The gathering will incorporate different stakeholder groups into different pieces of the gathering, with members of the public taking part in a multi-track curriculum.
