Educational Summit: Youth Engagement
The Educational Summit schedule
runs concurrent to the assembly program.
What is the Educational Summit: Youth Engagement?
Assembly registrants have the opportunity to register for this track within the URJ Biennial. The Summit targets congregational leaders devoted to education and concerned about the significant drop off rate of teens and their families after bar and bat mitzvah. Summit participants will also take part in some sessions of the assembly, but in order to take advantage of these special sessions, you must be registered for the Summit. For more background on the Summit and the Campaign, read this issue of Torah at the Center
Who should attend the Educational Summit: Youth Engagement?
Anyone who cares about engaging teens and their families in Jewish life. Because this is an education issue as well as a membership issue, and because it affects both teens and their parents, congregations or organizations that send a team of volunteers (presidents, education committee chairs, and membership chairs, for example) and professionals (educators, youth workers, rabbis, and cantors) will get the most out of the Summit.
