Great article that tells the story of how a Denver day school created a family learning event that enabled parents to learn along with their kids, gave parents an introduction to project-based learning, and created community by providing an opportunity for families to get to know each other. How could this program be adapted for your community?

Does your complementary school program have teen madrichim? Give them an amazing opportunity to learn with other Jewish educators this summer at #NewCAJE!
GEM: Grinspoon Experience for Madrichim. We are excited to tell you that we have gotten funding for a teen program at NewCAJE. So many of you have madrichim working for you. How about bringing one to the conference this year! The conference fee has been subsidized for the teens (15-18). This is so important because it encourages teens to consider a career in Jewish education. For more info: http://www.newcaje.org/newcaje-8/gem/
