Whoever said “it started with a whisper” had clearly never kicked off a programmatic year at a Jewish organization. Whatever your professional responsibilities are as we approach 5783, we hope you’re able to take time to breathe and reflect. We’ve compiled this list of opportunities for you to re-connect with our network of teen educators and engagement professionals.
