Communication Skills for Challenging Times with Kathy Simon, PhD

At this moment, it’s hard to get on the same page with colleagues and family members, let alone people whom we see as “other” in some way. Sadly, our patterns of speech often exacerbate differences, rather than to help us collaborate.

In this workshop, we’ll explore a few key ideas to help hard conversations go easier.


The Mandel Teacher Educator Institute (MTEI) invites you to join us for a Taste of MTEI starting July 7, and this is the first in a series of four.

On February 20, BJE’s Reshet-LA will "graduate" eight schools from Tier One of the program, bringing to 15 the total number of part-time Jewish school programs engaged in the practical work of school innovation. As the program continues to grow, participants are benefiting from the unique opportunity to connect with and learn from national experts in the part-time religious school world, opportunities that are only made possible through BJE.
