Darim Online has announcede two new programs for this coming year!


Darim Educator Fellows
An Intensive Semester of Hands-On Professional Development

This program is designed for educators in North American congregational/ complementary learning settings who are already using new media in their work and who would like to take their practice to the next level.


Darim is looking to mentor a small group of up to 3 individuals who work in congregational / complementary Jewish education, who are passionate about their work as Jewish educators and who are willing to take risks to integrate innovative 21st century learning skills, strategies, and technologies into their Jewish learning and teaching experiences. Candidates must also be willing and available to devote 2-4 hours a month to professional learning and additional time toward developing and implementing their project over a 5 month semester.


Darim will support Fellows through one-on-one coaching, facilitated discussions, learning activities including guest experts and exposure to successful models in Jewish and non-Jewish educational settings. Darim Fellows will also participate in the broader Darim Online Learning Network for Educators.


The Fall semester will run from September to January. The Spring semester will run from February to June.

This program is for educators in Jewish congregational / complementary learning settings, and others who are also interested.


Darim Online invites you and your school or synagogue to become a member of the new Darim Online Learning Network for Educators. Learning Network members take part in a series of webinars designed to help expand congregational and complementary educators’ understanding and use of web 2.0 technologies for learning. In addition, members are invited to engage in Darim's online community of like-minded educators, including teachers, education directors, rabbis, and cantors.
