A Webinar from the Jewish Education Project
Jewish educators have a responsibility to support our students as they grieve and process tragedies like the fatal mass shooting in Parkland, Florida. At the same time, we are witnessing an unprecedented mobilization of teenagers to change the status quo and ensure that such events never occur again.
This webinar will address how we can provide our students and youth with the emotional support that they need now, and to empower this generation to bring about the change they want to see in this world. Join us Wednesday, February 28, 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM EST.
