The University of Hartford will play host to 500 Jewish educators from more than 40 states gathered at the West Hartford school for the ninth annual NewCAJE conference, to be held July 29 – August 1. Early bird registration closes April 26. Scholarships are available. The conference will be preceded by a Shabbat experience.
The 2018 conference will bring together clergy, principals, educators, lay leaders, early childhood educators, artists, youth directors, and musicians for four days of learning, entertainment, prayer, and networking opportunities. We also offer special programs for high school students and those in the first five years of their career.
Highlights of the conference include 240 workshop sessions designed to provide educators with the skills and tools to spread innovations in Jewish education. The conference will also feature networking opportunities, prayer, and entertainment tailored to inspire and empower. New this year, NewCAJE is offering three certificate programs for principals, new teachers, and early childhood educators.
NewCAJE describes its mission as “re-imagining Jewish education by connecting, inspiring and affirming all Jewish educators to build a stronger Jewish community. NewCAJE raises up Jewish educators through transformational experiences, professional development, and Jewish learning in a joyful and intentional community.”
