Congratulations to the 2016-2017 Educational Partnership Initiative cohort for a fruitful school year! Starting in 2014, Sefaria launched the Partnership to invite teachers of Torah to formally be part of building Sefaria. The initiative, which began with four day schools and 100 students, was created to: (1) help teachers harness digital tools effectively and improve pedagogy around Jewish texts; and (2) provide Sefaria with a cohort of educators who use Sefaria in the classroom and deliver feedback on product development and refinement. This past school year, the program directly served 19 day schools, along with nine communal institutions, and reached more than 1,000 students.
