Before Adopting New Educational Paradigms, Synagogues Need an Organizational Heshbon HaNefesh

Whether it’s a new blended learning platform, the desire to bring camp to religious school, or ways to involve parents, I believe that synagogue leaders need to take a step back and look at their education program within the larger organizational context of the kehilla before making changes. If this part of the planning process is ignored, the innovations being considered may never bear fruit.
