Volunteerism is a core principle of NewCAJE. By working together, we make the field of Jewish education stronger. Working on a conference gives you a unique opportunity to contribute to that field, not to mention the professional experience and networking opportunities you’ll gain along the way! Consider spending a small amount of your time to advance Jewish education and your career.

Volunteer Opportunities
Tell us how many hours you can volunteer and what you’d like to do and we can help you find a meaningful and helpful volunteer role with NewCAJE. Some jobs take as little as 1 hour, with others requiring much more time. Please see the list of committees and tasks on this page, and tell us what you’d like to volunteer for!
