The Jewish Educators Assembly is pleased to be honoring Miriam Grossman of the Jewish Council on Urban Affairs on Sunday evening, Jan. 23, 2011 at the opening night of its 59th Annual Conference at The Westin Mount Laurel Hotel, Mount Laurel, N.J.
The program will be a celebration of the future as 20 young people who are already making creative and substantive contributions to the Jewish community are recognized.
The honorees represent a broad cross-section of Day Schools, Congregational Schools, Informal Education, Summer Camps, Hillel and the College Campus, and a variety of other Jewish Communal Service Agencies.
The evening will begin at 7:00 p.m. with a Dessert Reception. Each honoree will then be called up and presented individually. A concert will follow featuring the cutting edge sounds of the David Morgan Band with special guest Noah Solomon of Soulfarm. The general community is invited to attend. The cost is $36 per person and advance reservations are required.
The Jewish Educators Assembly is the professional organization of educators in the Conservative movement. Our mission is to promote excellence among educators committed to Conservative Jewish education by advancing professionalism, encouraging leadership, pursuing lifelong learning and building community.
The Annual Conference takes place this year from Sunday, Jan. 23 through Wednesday, Jan. 26 at the Westin Mount Laurel Hotel. More than 150 Principals, Heads of School and educational leaders from across North America will gather to further their professional growth and knowledge.
The theme for this year’s conference is “From Sinai to Cyberspace: Exploring the Impact of Technology on Jewish Education.”
The Jewish Educators Assembly believes that the grooming of a new generation of teachers and leaders to inspire the next generation is critically important to our Jewish future. We take great joy in applauding the talents of these exceptional young leaders.
