The 2017 Innovators Retreat, Oases of Change, took place in Boston on May 17-18. Nearly 100 stakeholders from all over the country joined together to reimagine Jewish education in Jewish Day Schools. We announced our 2017 grantees, received updates from previous grantees, and explored the HaKaveret Design models.
This year, we launched the HaKaveret Team Challenge. We pulled together an innovation design team of highly talented and motivated individuals for a facilitated, year-long creative process.
At our Innovators Retreat, the 10 outstanding members of our Design Team presented their proposed ideas for feedback and refinement.
