The Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) will offer a new continuing education initiative for rabbis, in partnership with the Rabbinical Assembly (RA), as part of the 2012 Rabbinical Assembly Convention. JTS will present a special convention track titled "Making Torah Relevant to Gen Next: You’re the App for That!" This program will feature a multidisciplinary approach whose goal is to connect Generation Xers and Millennials with synagogues. Rabbis will learn how to take the JTS signature approach to teaching Torah, one that bridges the gap between contemporary scholarship and the quest for personal meaning, and combine it with adult learning strategies and the use of social media.
The retreat will be conducted over the course of the RA Convention, May 6 to 9, 2012, at the Westin Atlanta Perimeter North Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia, and will be open to approximately 40 convention attendees on a first-come, first-served basis.
Registration for the retreat begins now, and the registration deadline is Monday, March 5, or as soon as all spots are filled.
