The Jewish Education Service of North America (JESNA) recently unveiled a new online resource for accessing information about and discussing new program models and resources for supplementary Jewish education, InnovationXChange. JESNA's aim is not just to make available richer information about innovative programs and resources, including links to web sites and videos of the programs in action when possible. They also want to take the “exchange” element seriously to encourage and enable program developers, users, and beneficiaries to share their experiences and reflections on them.

JESNA is holding a series of three convenings for professional and lay leaders involved with complementary education to discuss these important questions.
