Resources in Response to COVID-19

March 24, 2020

These are trying and unsettling times. Mandatory closures, bans on in-person gatherings, and stay-at-home orders have all radically changed Jewish education across all sectors. CASJE has curated a set of resources below that look at how these changes are testing education in a variety of settings, including: K-12 schooling, after-school learning, early childhood education, and higher education. What key questions and best practices can guide decision-making as we seek to adapt to new circumstances? 

We want to hear from you: How is your program adapting? What questions do you have about practices and policies that can support Jewish learning in the age of coronavirus? What pressing needs and hard decisions are you faced with? Please email us at casje@gwu.edu.
