The AVI CHAI, Kohelet, and Mayberg Foundations are excited to announce their sponsorship of a 2-year partnership with Ayeka and four select Jewish day schools, beginning January, 2018. The purpose of this RFP is to solicit requests from Jewish day school leadership who are interested in transforming their school’s Judaic Studies faculty through Soulful Education training by Ayeka professional staff.

Through a series of three retreats, three onsite coaching sessions, ongoing individual mentoring, and regular virtual conversations for administration and staff, Ayeka will transform the approach to Jewish education in four schools in North America.The goal of this two-year program is for two key Jewish Studies leaders in each school to become proficient and independent in both implementing Soulful Education pedagogy in their classrooms and in coaching current and future staff. During year one (January-June 2018), these school leaders will engage in intensive Soulful Education training with Ayeka. During year two (Fall 2018-Spring 2019), these leaders will coach other staff members by using and implementing theprinciples of Soulful Education.
