Fall Mini Course

Save the Dates! Continuing Education Committee offers Fall Mini-Course:

Non-School-Based Models of Jewish Education: Wednesdays, November 5, 19, Dec. 3

From camps, projects, family programs, quests, and more, many alternative models of learning within the synagogue structure have emerged over the past 20 years. In this three-session series, we will uncover the history of these developments; learn about the research and scholarship supporting alternative models; explore new practices in the field; and discuss which of these innovations may be most relevant and generative for us in our own settings. Featuring Dr. Isa Aron as well as an array of educators sharing their program models.


Isa Aron, Ph.D., is Professor of Jewish Education at the Rhea Hirsch School of Education (RHSOE) of Hebrew Union College–Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC -JIR) in Los Angeles. She was the Founding Director of the RHSOE’s Experiment in Congregational Education, and now co-directs the B’nai Mitzvah Revolution, a joint project of HUC and the Union for Reform Judaism.
