As Jewish educators, we are called upon to teach texts and content, inculcate skills and model Jewish values, all while inspiring students to embrace a Jewish life that has contemporary meaning and purpose. As 21st-century guides, we are tasked with developing moral character, nurturing spirituality, fostering healthy relationships, building resilience and cultivating independence. How do we balance these roles and determine our priorities? Is there a deeper understanding of Jewish text that could provide direction? Are there new findings in education that offer guidance? What skills and insights do we need to keep sharpening? What will excellence in Jewish education look like in the next 5-10 years? At the Pardes Center for Jewish Educators November 2017 conference (November 5-7, 2017), Cultivating the Whole Child Through a Jewish Lens – for PCJE alumni and their colleagues – we will explore these and other questions in a warm, spirited environment of collegiality and openness. We will learn together, reflect on our work and challenges, and share ideas and best practices.

The CASJE-sponsored Emerging Scholars Seminar at the 2017 Network for Research in Jewish Education (NRJE) conference was all the usual nice things. There was an interesting panel on potential career trajectories within the fields of Jewish educational research and practice. There were productive conversations between mentors and mentees that touched on a wide range of issues. Meredith Katz and Jeff Kress did an excellent job moderating conversation and providing a general structure to the various interactions. It was all very nice.
