As Managing Director of the Jewish Education Innovation Challenge, I come in contact with several blogs that advocate deep thought, rededication to Torah values in chinuch, and challenging the status quo. As one of those sources of information, I would like to share with you the press release we sent out concerning Rabbi Dr. Berel Wein, our keynote speaker. His keynote address that will be live streamed on May 22nd from our Innovators Retreat is titled “Jews, Education, and the Way Forward.” The release can be downloaded from our website here: http://jewishchallenge.org/2014pressrelease/
We hope you will share this press release with your audience since, from your blog’s content, it seems we have common values about Jewish education.
