Reshet network event draws over 100 informal educators to meet, greet and tweet
Over 100 informal educators from across the community and organisations including NSPCC and Goldsmiths, University of London, came to meet, greet and tweet at Reshet’s 3rd Annual Gathering this week. Held at Twitter HQ in central London, guests were tasked with talking to at least 3 new people in a bid to expand their own professional networks.
Reshet is a specialist and skilled team, established by UJIA and the Jewish Leadership Council, to build capacity and confidence in the provision and delivery of informal education to children and young people across the Jewish community.
Reshet’s Executive Director, Shelley Marsh explains, “Informal Jewish Education is at the heart of the Jewish community with over 8,000 children and young people engaged on a weekly basis in enriching their Jewish identity and/or strengthen their relationship with Israel. Bringing together the people engaged in Jewish informal education and giving them a platform to share how they learn and teach, to understand a different context that might enhance their own working practice is hugely beneficial.”
