Stand Up and be COUNTED in NATE’s annual campaign!

Dear ARJE Member,

“ARJE offers a community of colleagues for networking, collaboration and consultation.”
“ARJE connects us to colleagues old and new.”
“ARJE helps to professionalize the field of Jewish Education.”
“ARJE allows people with a like passion to come together to share accomplishments and challenges.”

These are answers to the question “Why are you proud to be COUNTED as a member of NATE?” During the period between Pesach and Shavuot, while we are counting the omer, ARJE is embarking on a new annual campaign: we are counting ourselves. We are asking members to give just $18 and tell us why you are proud to be counted as a member of NATE. Donations and pledges may be made online at

ARJE is valuable and supports us all in different ways; it is the professional voice of Reform Jewish Educators in positions throughout the Jewish educational community. NATE’s recent strategic plan continues to propel us into the 21st century and meet the needs of today’s members, families, and institutions!

We turn to you to help ARJE fulfill our vision and dreams. As we embark on the festive holiday of Pesach and begin counting the omer, please stand up and be COUNTED as part of the strong and vibrant ARJE community.

Thank you for your support and chag sameach!
Debbie Niederman, ARJE President
Kathy Schwartz, ARJE Financial Vice President
