Know an Inspiring New Educator?

Calling all new educators: there's a Leadership for Emerging Educators Program just for you.

LEEP, a program at NewCAJE, is a two-year fellowship for professionals at the beginning of their Jewish education journeys. Through mentoring, development, and collaboration, LEEP participants create a strong community of practice intended to last a lifetime.
