Join us for a conversation with Dr. Arielle Levites, Managing Director of Collaborative for Applied Studies in Jewish Education (CASJE). Dr. Levites and CASJE’s team were honored for their landmark study of a field critical to the success of a broad swath of Jewish programming. CASJE’s Career Trajectories of Jewish Educators in the United States research provides applicable knowledge about the recruitment, retention, and professional development of Jewish educators.
Learn about this landmark study for the field of Jewish education. CASJE researched the pipeline and career arcs of frontline Jewish educators, creating usable knowledge to enable more people and organizations to strengthen Jewish education and better support educators’ professional journeys.
CASJE explains what market forces have devalued formal preparation of Jewish educators and shines light on a downward shift in what employers are looking for in classroom teachers and other educators.
