Conference for Day School Educators

In June, we brought together Jewish Studies teachers from across the country for an interactive convening to (virtually) share their reflections, frustrations, successes, and take-aways from the past year-and-a-half. Graphic artist Estee Ellis did some creative visual note-taking during the afternoon sessions. We hope you enjoy her creations, which you can find here.

In addition to highlighting educators’ voices throughout the convening, several students made an appearance and powerfully described their own experiences. Click here to check out the program schedule and watch the special “flipped keynote address” with Sefaria’s co-Founder, Josh Foer.

Curious to know more about what’s in the works? Sefaria's Learning Department is excited to provide you with Torah as you relax and recharge wherever you may find yourself this summer. This collection of Sefaria’s Summer Reads features some of our favorite sheets for you to learn and read through this summer on topics ranging from rest and relaxation to travel and transitions. Don't forget to share some of the Torah you learn and love with others, too. Happy Summer!
