The annual UJIA conference on Jewish education research is always fascinating. The sheer variety of topics and level of academic research is breathtaking and the opportunity to meet old friends and to share with them is most welcome. Although you might think that the subjects would be theoretical, I felt that they could have a real impact on how school leaders think about curriculum and teaching. Thank you UJIA.
This years’ conference was no less of a treat. You may have read about some of the talks in the Jewish press, so I won’t go over old ground, but there were a couple of lectures by good and valued friends which really resonated with me and I thought that I would take this opportunity to tell you about them.
