All teachers and educators are invited to learn from our panelists as they discuss an issue that is in the forefront of our minds: How do we manage the tension between embracing the innovation and changes of our times while continuing to embrace our tradition and all that offers? We will also present the 2013 Award for Excellence in Jewish Education.
