Engaging Pluralism

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What are the skills and capacities we seek to instill in our students?  How can we prepare them to become people who are open to others even as they hold serious Jewish commitments and who can make a meaningful contribution to a world filled with diverse people?

These sessions will not include formal presentations by expert speakers, rather they presume that through the shared expertise in the room, facilitated by knowledgeable peers, conference participants will learn new ways to move the needle in their schools in these areas of interest.
