The Jewish Educator

The Jewish Educator (1980)

We are concerned with the severe shortage of competent principals and teachers, as well as the status of the Jewish educator in the community. Consistent with the League’s continuous commitment to Jewish education, Women’s League for Conservative Judaism urges that Sisterhoods be actively represented on Congregational School Boards and work to assure that:

  1. Adequate school budgeting is a congregational priority;
  2. The Jewish educator and teacher is accorded the status our tradition teaches;
  3. The role of the Jewish educator is preserved and enlarged where possible, including such areas as youth work and adult education. The educator, in turn, should be encouraged to participate fully in the activities of the Congregation served;
  4. Jewish leadership supports and encourages careers in Jewish education.
