Stories from the Field: HUC-JIR Educators Lead and Teach in a New Normal

Main Content

These are the stories of Jewish educators – our graduate students in HUC-JIR’s graduate programs in Jewish education – who responded and created new paths forward in the face of crisis. Their core values remain their North Star: relationships, community, learning, kindness and compassion. Their love of Judaism and dedication to learners permeate their work. Their energy continues to inspire us.
