Families have more demands on them than ever with the increasing cost of living in the Bay Area and the ongoing impact of Covid-19 on schooling and parenting. Jewish LearningWorks supports educators that interface directly with families, and do the important work of engaging families in everyday Jewish life. These resources are available to help you plan programs, access tools for including students with special needs, and continue your own professional development in the company of your colleagues and friends.
