We had a great group of educators join together to think about Metrics and Evaluation in May. It was exciting for me to see people from across the country come together and support each other in thinking about their work! We are starting another 3-part Metrics and Evaluation Intensive meeting on Tuesdays from 9:30am-11:00am starting June 2. This series is designed for program directors and/or teacher-leaders who are interested in thinking through how to collect and use data to support program planning and development. We'd love to have you join us...

NEW DOCUMENTARY REVEALS A HIDDEN SHOAH STORY Dear friends, It is an honor for me to be at the forefront of a story tradition that belongs uniquely to children of Holocaust survivors. Thank you for inviting us to tell you more: It is a special privilege to follow one son of survivors on a journey to trace his inherited trauma in my documentary, The Presence of Their Absence. Armed with only scant clues from his late parents, Fred Zaidman ventures into the unknown to tell his story for this first time. With helpers in Poland, Israel, Germany, and an unlikely source – a Baptist minister in Atlanta - Fred finds his roots in the ashes of the Shoah. Yad Vashem has called The Presence of Their Absence “a film for the ages”. We are delighted it has just come to Digital HD on iTunes and your other platforms: https://itunes.apple.com/…/the-presence-of-the…/id 1449946652 - The link includes the trailer. Also try: Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Presence-Their-Absence-Fred-Zaidman/dp/B07P1C57FL I hope you will view the film, send your thoughts, and consider sharing your personal stories via our private email address on our website (thepresenceoftheirabsence.com), as we plan a new film on trans-generational trauma.

The Great Kosher Meat War of 1902: Immigrant Housewives and the Riots That Shook New York City - Jewish LearningWorks

The Great Kosher Meat War of 1902 tells the twin stories of uneducated but deeply observant female immigrants who discover their collective power as consumers, and of the Midwestern meatpacking cartel that conspired to keep prices high. Anticipating both the consumer movement and contemporary Jewish activism, these women organized themselves into a potent fighting force.

How Women’s Relationships Define our Lives and our Leadership - Jewish LearningWorks

Forging a Jewish Path to Resilience

Our CEO, Dana Sheanin was published today in EJewish Philanthropy

From the article...

"As we confront a global pandemic, address deep economic inequality and wrestle with systemic racism, we are called as Jews – and as human beings – to do the difficult work of balancing self-care, and care for others, and asked to do both with a sense of urgency. The most critical step educational leaders can take today is to encourage teachers to deepen their focus on Judaism’s timeless lessons of character development. A subtle shift in our focus can meaningfully support the resilience of learners of all ages – from preschool through retirement."
