Call for Papers - Jewish Summer Camps as Educational Resources
The editors of the Journal of Jewish Education are planning a themed issue on Jewish summer camps. We are seeking research on day or residential summer camps that self-identify as Jewish camps. The focus of the research is to be on camps as a Jewish educational resource. The camps may be located in North or South America, Europe or Israel and serve a camper population from between the age range of 5-17. Research on educational staff at camp and camp alumni is also most welcome.

A Relational Approach to Building Local Leadership in Jewish Early Childhood Education
In recent years, Chicago Jewish early childhood leaders (directors, lay people, and educators) have been gathering together to seek knowledge, support, and understanding. Their work has addressed several needs in our system: cultivating a shared sense of responsibility for each early childhood center, identifying and nurturing future leaders, helping leaders develop non-profit management skills, retaining directors through the challenges of leading a family center, developing an inspired vision for excellence in teaching and learning, and recruiting new teachers.

The Vast and the Varied: American Jews and Jewish Life Today
These are dynamic and exciting times to be an American Jew and, more importantly, to “do Jewish.” Old rules and restrictions about what constituted “appropriate” Jewish engagement have seemingly gone by the wayside. People are encouraged — even empowered by organizations — to discover experiences and learning that may tap into their Jewish identities and expression. If someone finds personal meaning in an experience, an activity, or a text with even remote connection to Judaism — great. That pursuit of meaning and relevance is what many people today, especially young people, understand to be essential to being Jewish, and to being alive.

Modi’in School Pupils Help Find 900-Year-Old Crusader Jewelry Trove
Some 2,500 Israeli pupils and volunteers from Modiin-Maccabim-Re’ut participated in an archaeological excavation in their own community, coming away with a new sense of history — and a treasure trove of 900-year-old Crusader-period jewelry. The 4th- through 12th-grade pupils engaged in a cultural-educational archaeological excavation as part of a joint Israel Antiquities Authority and municipality venture at Givat Tittora over the past year. Alongside the pupils, volunteers of all ages were also uncovering their town’s history and heritage — and having good, dirty fun in the process.

Concurrent to the community-based education and engagement initiatives, the Jewish Teen Education and Engagement Funder Collaborative embarked on a process of enhanced research into teen Jewish engagement, learning and education.
