Welcome to the June 2018 The Jewish Educator, containing artcles written by your colleagues. For this issue, we asked for articles on the following topics: 1. As we approach the High Holidays and new beginnings, share changes and exciting ideas you institute in your classroom, in your professional development, or in the climate of your school. 2. With today’s overprogrammed students and overcommitted families, share creative ways of keeping children, with the support of their families, in school and engaged in the learning process.

At NewCAJE 7 in Naperville, Illinois, two workshop blocks were devoted to the teaching of the Tishrei holidays with more of an emphasis on Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur than on Sukkot. The calendar often gives educators an opportunity to teach Sukkot during the holiday, if not before it, but the High Holidays often are not taught or taught sparsely, and usually not systematically. This year, we are most fortunate that the High Holidays come much later in the fall — beginning as they do at the very beginning of October. NewCAJE wants to make available to you all of the workshops from the two workshop blocks and their content. The presenters were asked to write up their workshops so that someone who did not attend their session also could benefit from them. They were asked to include full stories, links to music, etc., so that everything here would be available to you and easy to access for your teaching.

An intergenerational group of Jewish educators has issued a call to the grassroots membership of the Jewish educational community to re-establish the pluralistic network that was CAJE under the name NewCAJE – New Coalition for Alternatives in Jewish Education. The new organization will incorporate the core CAJE values of pluralism, shared teaching and learning, and immersion in Torah l’shema. Operationally, it will be volunteer-led and supported by its grassroots constituency. Money initially raised will go to buy the intellectual property of the former organization, to outreach to the next generation of Jewish educators, and to produce the next conference.
