SHEVET: the Jewish Family Education Exchange

Welcome to SHEVET: the Jewish Family Education Exchange.  We are the new central address for Jewish educators committed to reaching, engaging and strengthening Jewish families through education, and fortifying and growing community into the next generation. 


SHEVET is the national collective for Jewish family educators. We offer multiple platforms on which to share best practices, generate ideas, create collaborative programming, develop curricula, find resources, seek collegial support, engage in professional development and learn from each other and leaders in our field. 

Through an online community of practice, social media channels and regional conferences, we are a true exchange, learning from one another and contributing to the growth and robustness of our field.

We take our name from the Hebrew word for tribe or clan, as we grow a cohort of educators who are enabling Jewish families to grow and learn together.

    At the Moreh L’Morim Conference in Detroit, Michigan this past week,
    Judy Elkin, Robyn Faintich and I led a workshop that focused on the “BIG PICTURE” of JFE in the future. As per Robyn’s request, I will be posting the 4 questions that we discussed and would love it if you would share your thoughts on them. Thanks! Lisa

    Question 1: What Does Jewish Family Education Need Right Now?

    Question 2: At the end of congregational school/day school (when our students graduate) , what should families know? Do? Feel? Experience?

    Question #3: What is “relationship-based JFE” (vs. program based JFE)? What does it look like? (…and why are Chabad and Aish so good at it?)
    How do we help stakeholders/lay leaders/funders/bosses shift to a relationship-based JFE initiative and away from program-based?

    And finally, Question #4: If JFE were to be wildly successful, what would the Jewish community look 5-10 years from now?
