What does it mean to develop and Sustain the Jewish Day School educational experience?
Do you have an idea for a venture that will strengthen religious purposefulness, Jewish literacy, or an understanding of Jewish people hood for Day Schools?
Perhaps you have a solution to the financial hardships facing families who want to send their children to Day School but cannot afford to do so?
If you have an answer to any of the above questions, we invite you to apply to the PresenTense NYC Fellowship to our Jewish Day School Innovation track. We are recruiting three Fellows that are dealing with Jewish Day School innovation, and hope that your idea will be the next greatest solution!
On Tuesday we had our first team meeting with the Steering Committee members. An unbelievable group of artists, marketing consultants, philanthropy advisors, event planners and technology gurus - the Steering Committee is an amazingly diverse representation of the voices and experiences of the NYC Jewish community.
We captured this energy by coordinating a Cloud Storm. Basically, we asked the Steering Committee to think about the problems in the NYC Community for which they would like to find solutions. They wrote their ideas on sticky-notes, and then grouped these notes on the walls around the room in 9 different categories. Afterward we reviewed the outcome and determined that NYC needs to find solutions to the following problems in the areas below.
Review their ideas, and add some thoughts of your own. And if your motivated enough to do something about it - we encourage you to apply as a Fellow for our training program, launching this January.
