Video: An Insider's Look at JEDLAB

JEDLAB is a network of people driven to design the future of Jewish education through collaborative experimentation, in response to the shifting realities of Jewish life.

The Jewish Daily Forward wonders if JEDLAB could provide a new model for Jewish education, and The Jewish Week says that they're the "latest hotspot forum for Jewish educators".

JEDLAB members work together to design the experiments that aim to use holistic and systemic approaches to transform Jewish education. The JEDLAB network allows educators to engage with people whose visions align most closely with theirs, and provides opportunities to form relationships with those who don't. Join co-founders, Ken Gordon and Yechiel Hoffman for an introduction to this network and a discussion about how funders can wade into the JEDLAB network to strengthen their role as supporters of Jewish education.
