The gathering will take place at several schools in Manhattan, details will be shared closer to the gathering.

In addition to visiting 3 - 4 schools in Manhattan, we're excited to partner with the American Jewish Historical Society for an interactive program on using primary source documents in the teaching of Jewish history. You'll experience the AJHS archive and learn from scholars about how to bring primary sources into the classroom. We're also thrilled to be able to participate in UJA-Federation of NY's Martin Luther King Morning of Service.
