Inside Jewish Day Schools: A Conversation with Alex Pomson and Jack Wertheimer
Thursday March 24
What can we learn from the carefully crafted portraits of nine reputable Jewish day schools that vary in size, location, sponsorship, ideological orientation? How are these schools doing their job and how are school leaders responding to the pressing challenges facing day schools in the 21st century?
Authors Alex Pomson and Jack Wertheimer shared highlights from their 2022 book, Inside Jewish Day Schools: Leadership, Learning, and Community and responded to comments and questions from Amanda Pogany (Luria Academy), Daniel Held (UJA Federation of Greater Toronto) and Susie Tanchel (Hebrew College). Sharon Feiman-Nemser (Mandel Center for Studies in Jewish Education) moderated the discussion.
