The world of education is moving fast, especially in the realm of education technology. How can Jewish educators keep up with the frenetic pace of new sites, apps and platforms appearing (and disappearing) constantly? More to the point, how can these resources be adapted to the world of Jewish education? Thus was born the idea of CJEiLearn.

It is designed to help make sense out of the virtual “embarrassment of riches” that characterizes the Ed Tech universe, uniquely framing it within the needs of Jewish education.

An established baseline for enrollment at these schools would be an invaluable tool for professionals aiming to increase the relevancy and impact these schools have on their students.

This article provides an overview and analysis of a relatively new phenomenon: congregational schools that have altered the conventional grammar of schooling, either through their structural arrangements or through their curricular approaches. Five pre-bar/bat mitzvah models are discussed: family schools, schools as communities, informal / experiential programs, afterschool/day care programs, and those that deconstruct and reconstruct the conventional model. In addition, three curricular innovations are examined: project based learning, learning organized around the interests and abilities of the students, and Hebrew Through Movement. Also considered are the factors that are necessary to the survival and proliferation of these new structures and curricular arrangements.
