Jewish LearningWorks inspires professional excellence through networking, skill building, coaching and leadership development programs.

In response to physical distancing guidelines, Jewish LearningWorks trainings will be held online until further notice.

The professional learning team is honored to have the ongoing opportunity to work with and learn from our community of talented, dedicated and inspiring educators. For 120 years, Jewish LearningWorks has served as a wellspring of support and training for educators and organizations throughout the Bay Area. Since completing our strategic plan in 2017, we have expanded both the breadth and depth of our professional development offerings, which last year touched more than 1000 teachers, camping and youth professionals, senior educational leaders and others in more than 100 local organizations.

We encourage you to rely on us as a resource for your work by participating in:

  • Individualized coaching and customized training with our senior educators

  • Content rich virtual learning opportunities

  • The Voices for Good women’s leadership initiative

  • Communities of Practice to enable professionals to reflect on their work

  • And our menu of learning opportunities for youth professionals made possible by the Bay Area Area Jewish Teen Education and Engagement initiative

We are always open to your feedback on our work. We invite you to be in touch with Jenni Mangel, Managing Director of Professional Learning.
