One hundred of the best and brightest young (age 23-42 ) professionals from all fields of Jewish Education will be invited to come to NewCAJE2 at American Hebrew Academy, Greensboro NC between July 31 - August 3, 2011. We are looking for thoughtful teachers and future leaders of Jewish education across geographical, demographical and denominational lines. Our definition of teacher is anyone involved in the transmission of Jewish education and culture: classroom teachers, principals, rabbis, cantors, artists, writers, musicians, storytellers, communal service professionals, layleaders, bloggers, website developers, webinaristas and parents.


NewCAJE offers a unique opportunity for young professionals to play a significant role in the 2011 conference as participants and presenters. NewCAJE aims to inspire, nurture and support new ideas, passions and interests that a new generation of leadership brings to the community of Jewish education. Additionally, a special one‐day post conference retreat will be held to build a community of Jewish educators and begin to reimagine and set the agenda for Jewish education in the 21st century.


NewCAJE is encouraging young Jewish Education professionals to apply to NewCAJE2:

  • as Young Professional Fellows, presenting at the conference and receiving a considerable stipend.
  • as Young Professional Community Members, receiving a reduction on the conference fee.


All young professionals are invited to attend Young Professional lunches, networking events, and programs during the conference and the YP Post conference day on Aug. 3-4, 2011.
