Family Education Consultation

“We agree that Jewish families deserve exciting, thought provoking and practical ways to get their hands and minds involved in Jewish living and Jewish ways of thinking.” - Family Educator

The intentions of our Family Education initiatives are to:

  • involve family members in their children's Jewish education from the earliest stages,
  • establish contexts for lifelong learning that will impact the family,
  • strengthen the home as a center of Jewish life,
  • connect Jewish values and learning to decision making and actions in all aspects of life,
  • create connections to community in an environment that nurtures Jewish life,
  • empower parents to become Jewish models and teachers for their children by providing skills and knowledge,
  • promote a partnership of all professional and lay education leaders within each site, and
  • continue to develop the profession of family education and support the professional growth of Jewish family educators.
