Jewish Education

Education facilitates and convenes the Jewish community on issues pertaining to Jewish education, enriches existing programs, and serves as a catalyst for new initiatives. We understand that Jewish education is the critical link in ensuring Jewish continuity and the increased engagement of all members of the Jewish Dallas community.

Professional Educators

  • Professional Development

    Whether instruction takes place in a formal day school, preschool or religious school or the learning happens informally through youth groups, camps and immersive experiences, our community's teachers are given the opportunity for year-round, continuing education programs while the institutions that employ them are provided with needed consultation services and regularly convened to tackle collective challenges and capture shared opportunities.
