How the federation supports education

Last week, in “Many ways to learn,” I was quoted as having said “we went out of almost every business we were in – synagogue-based religious schools, Jewish early childhood programs – and we entered into new ones.”

While that is true, it doesn’t tell the whole story.

To clarify, the Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey continues to support synagogue-based religious schools and Jewish early childhood programs, but in different ways than we had in the past. We have been working with synagogue religious schools on introducing technology into their classrooms and curricula, as well as on innovation in the school’s design and structure via our Atid (Addressing Transformative Innovative Design) program. In the Jewish early childhood arena, we have been working with the schools on raising their profile within the community. For example, we will host the second annual Jewish Early Childhood Fair – open house – at World of Wings in Teaneck on November 16.
