Announcing the Regional Educators Program

Published Feb 26, 2024

The Avodah Institute for Social Change is thrilled to announce the launch of the Regional Educators Cohort!

This new initiative is a year-long professional development opportunity for Jewish education leaders in or near Cleveland, Detroit, Columbus, and Pittsburgh.

Educators will learn tools to ensure that justice is centrally woven into their educational ethos, from regular study and conversation about moral responsibility, to visionary structures that reflect the genuinely diverse needs and identities within our communities, to opportunities for action on essential local issues. The program launches June 2024 with a summer intensive and continues with coaching and learning opportunities through the 2024-2025 school year.

This cohort is geared towards mid- to senior-level leaders in Jewish youth educational settings who operate on a school-year schedule. This includes roles such as school department heads, youth group directors, synagogue or JCC education directors, and others.z

This is an incredible opportunity to make an impact in our Jewish educational spaces. To learn more or nominate an educator go to
