"What would it look like if Legacy and Emerging Organizations were aligning with each other to support more inspiring, meaningful and relevant Jewish learning for today’s children, teens and families?" ask the writers as they open the discussion to be held at a special session of the GA?


"We are starting with our own internal and external inquiry. TheJewish Education Project, based in NY with over 100 years of history, is partnering with UpStart Bay Area, a San Francisco based, 6 year old national organization working to accelerate integration of innovative ideas into Jewish life. Working together enriches us, allows us each to deepen our strengths and gain complementary capacity.


Together, we will engage our constituencies – congregations, community centers, schools, camps and a diverse range of Jewish start-ups, to explore these issues and develop different prototypes to share with the larger community. It’s likely that we will encounter some of our own challenges to deep collaboration along the way. We intend to share those findings too.


Today, the GA opens and will once again host a session in the style of theJewish Futures Conference – join in our session, sponsored with JESNA, and launch this inquiry with us."
