The Community Educators live with the BIMA participants in the residence halls. They guide and inspire participants in the challenging work of understanding and creating community, focusing on diversity, Shabbat, and the relationship between Jewish identity and artistic expression. Community Educators come from diverse geographical, artistic, and Jewish backgrounds and are graduate students and professionals with expertise in experiential Jewish and arts education. Community Educators receive specialized training in working with teens, teamwork, pluralism, and community-building. They enable participants to find their voice, take on leadership roles, and contribute to a vibrant, creative community.
