We look at the new Jewish education ‘laboratory’ at the Kaplen JCC midway through its inaugural year. Starting a school — going from the daydream to the absolute reality of actual ninth-graders looking at you expectantly one September day — is an extraordinary achievement. You get to shape students’ lives. That’s what Tikvah Wiener of Teaneck did with the Idea School, a new Jewish high school whose freshman class started in September. The school’s set at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades in Tenafly; the intergenerational programming inside the building and the wooded acres outside seem a necessary part of it.

A few young Israeli entrepreneurs saw an opening that they are filling with a new product called Remini, which is used a great deal in Israel, to some extent across this country, including by Barnert Temple in Franklin Lakes, Gan Aviv in Fair Lawn and Bergenfield, and by schools as far afield in every way as one in Dubai. Remini allows teachers and other educators to upload photos and messages to parents. Messages can go to the whole school, an entire class, a specific group of parents, or just one set of them. Parents can save photos and messages on the child’s own timeline — it’s backed up in the cloud — so a child’s entire early childhood can be documented and parents — and grandparents, should the parents decide to invite them — can gain access to it easily. Parents cannot upload content to the main part of the app, although they can to the timeline, but if the teacher or administrator agrees, they can exchange private messages.
