With your participation and support, we accomplished a lot last year.  More than 28,000  people were impacted by 600+ programs and events.  By partnering with more than 140 schools and institutions, we were able to reach, teach and ignite a passion for Jewish learning.

Here's how it breaks down:

We're starting the year strong, with wonderful events and important professional development opportunities, including Beyond Silence, the first ever Jewish professional development day focused on child sexual abuse. We urge all professionals and leaders to join us.
