The Annual Prizmah Day School Conference is taking place March 10-12, 2019 in Atlanta, GA. It brings together Jewish day school leaders, lay leaders, and communal professionals from across the North American day school landscape to learn from one another and be inspired to dream together.

The first day’s full-conference experiences included an opening by George Couros on the Innovator’s Mindset and a dinner featuring an ELI Talks StorySlam with five presenters sharing stories about their dreams for Jewish education. In between, a plethora of sessions (among them quite a few by AVI CHAI grantees) further shed light on the theme of dreams.

Here are just a few examples of dreams witnessed at Prizmah 2019:

  • Jewish day school leaders will be the change we want to see in the world. - DSLTI alumni spoke at “Big Jewish Questions on Our Minds” on how to reimagine critical areas of day school leadership work ranging from inclusion of diverse learners to the changing demographics in the Jewish community.
  • Children will construct Jewish meaning through exploration in a Jewish environment that stimulates and challenges.
  • Courageous school leaders will have a clear vision of their schools’ Hebrew language goals and align their teaching to those goals.
  • Schools will collaborate to shift paradigms and personalize learning in the classroom.
