YERUSHA

The year-long program, now in its second year, distinguishes itself from other Jewish professional development opportunities in that the operative language is Polish and all workshop facilitators are based in Poland. Yerusha (Heb. Inheritance) is one of the few programs designed by Polish Jewish educators, offered in Polish and led by educators from Poland. Supported in part by a grant from the Dutch Jewish Humanitarian Fund and individual contributions, Yerusha is a forum for 10 professionals working in Jewish institutions and Jewish communities around the country. The curriculum draws on Jewish values and traditions, introducing cutting-edge educational methodologies to assist cohort members in enriching educational programming and community building strategies within their own institutions and communities.
