What types of Jewish day schools are there, and how do you distinguish the difference? How do they operate? What happens day to day? What do the schools mean to their students, families, and communities?

The authors of Inside Jewish Day Schools: Leadership, Learning and Community, Alex Pomson and Jack Wertheimer, will share some of the highlights from their research, moderated by master teacher educator and scholar in education, Sharon Feiman-Nemser. They will be joined by Susie Tanchel (Hebrew College), Amanda Pogany (Luria Academy) and Daniel Held (UJA Federation of Greater Toronto), who will share perspectives on how the book impacts their work in the field.
