What does this moment in history demand of us as Jewish educators and how might we sharpen our skills to rise to the occasion? This seminar will explore a variety of tools, theories, and stances that we can use in building cultures of learning that will not only respond to, but lift up the communities in which we teach and the surrounding culture.
