Jewish Educational Leadership invites articles for Spring 2017 Issue focusing on Tefillah. Tefillah is a challenge for adults – witness how many people struggle to make it to their synagogue, struggle to find meaningful moments when they get there, and struggle to pray when not in an organized prayer environment or in deep crisis. No wonder that the Rabbis called tefillah an avodah, a labor. Teaching students to engage in tefillah raises the challenge even further. The next issue of Jewish Educational Leadership is dedicated to addressing the question of how to address tefillah.

What does learning look like in Jewish education? This fall, the Portraits of Jewish Learning project (PJL) will commission 6-8 papers from educators in various settings that (1) describe how learning occurs in Jewish education and (2) help to deepen the discussion of what we mean by Jewish learning. An honorarium will be awarded to authors of commissioned papers. We invite researchers, and practitioners interested in research, who want to develop a narrative about Jewish learning. Applicants should plan to be (or recently have been) systematically documenting the experience of learners (of any background, from preschoolers to adults) in any Jewish educational context (e.g., school, afterschool, camp, retreat, family education, adult learning, online, etc.).
