Join a Reshet Prizmah network!

Each Reshet - Hebrew for network - centers on a particular topic of interest. The members of each Reshet, with the support of the Prizmah team, design dynamic and creative networked learning opportunities. Organized by school professionals and lay leaders, every Reshet utilizes a variety of digital communication and in-person opportunities to forge meaningful connections with geographically diverse communities.

Join a Reshet, and have a plethora of knowledge at your fingertips. By connecting to our forums, you will gain access to the wisdom, expertise, and support of thousands of Jewish day school colleagues. Discuss opportunities for growth, celebrate successes, and brainstorm solutions to challenging scenarios common among day schools. After participating, you'll emerge feeling refreshed and inspired by the members of your Reshet, with new perspectives on and solutions to the problems you posed.
