As we light the last Chanuka candle tonight, I would like to share some thoughts about the JEDLAB Facebook Group and what this network is meant to be. It was created as a place to be creative, innovative and to think out of the box. It was created to bring all different flavors of the Jewish world together to try and bring new ideas, big ideas, to make a difference in the work we do. I joined when the network was barely 2,000.

Following in the footsteps of the wonderful #edchat, a twice-weekly online chat about all things education, #jedchat was begun two years ago as a parallel version focusing on Jewish education.
