It explores practical suggestions, the implications of new technology tools, training educators to address learning differences and new angles for achieving real, meaningful development. EdJewTopia is an e-newsletter devoted to the field of complementary Jewish education (CJE). There are hundreds of thousands of children engaged in community programs, synagogue schools, homeshuling, experiential retreats, and other modes of Jewish engagement.
