It is a pleasure to announce the opening of registration for the first ever New York area Jedcamp! Officially titled JedcampNJNY (#jedcampnjny on Twitter), it will be held at Yavneh Academy in Paramus, NJ on Sunday, April 21st. This event is open to all who are interested - day school teachers, high school teachers, Hebrew school teachers, all denominations, all subject areas, administrators, everyone. As long as you have a desire to share your thoughts and ideas about Jewish education or be shared with, this is the conference for you.

 

Following the successful South Florida Jedcamp held in late December, where 40 Jewish educators from all types of Jewish schools came together on a Sunday to discuss a wide range of topics in education, from hi-tech to low-tech to no-tech, a group of Jewish educators in the NY-NJ area decided to hold a Jedcamp for Jewish educators and administrators in their area.

 

A few details that you should know about Jedcamp:

  • It is absolutely, positively, 100% free of charge.
  • Attendees will have the opportunity to post session topics throughout the day.
  • Jedcamp runs by a "vote with your feet" approach - if you are in a session and decide you would rather be in another one, you can walk out and move to another room - and no one is allowed to be insulted!
  • There is no cost for attending Jedcamp.
  • Jedcamp is a grassroots event - there is no sponsoring organization.
  • This event is open to all who are interested - day school teachers, high school teachers, Hebrew school teachers, all denominations, all subject areas, administrators, everyone. As long as you have a desire to share your thoughts and ideas about Jewish education or be shared with, this is the conference for you.
