Young Professionals

You love Jewish education, and you’re passionate about what you do, always dreaming up ideas about your community as well the big picture. At the same time, budgets are shrinking, guidance is lacking, and the educators your age are doing more jobs concurrently than any generation before, often for less pay and fewer benefits. What do you do? Come to NewCAJE!

Come to NewCAJE to:

  • Take real steps to actualize your dreams for Jewish education
  • Meet with your peers face to face to exchange knowledge and experience
  • Build a network of lifelong friends and colleagues that will support you throughout your career
  • Bring your own education to a higher level
  • Foster mentoring relationships with scholars and thinkers at the top of your field
  • Have a platform to advocate for optimal working conditions and benefits for yourself and your peers.

The Young Professionals Program provides social networking throughout the conference for educators 22-36.

Explore the tabs above for the benefits and requirements.

The NewCAJE Young Professionals (YP) Program seeks to connect young educators to each other and help them succeed in the conference, and in their careers. Through workshops, community building, and social programs, YP gives young educators the tools they need to get the most out of NewCAJE, grow as professionals, and meet incredible friends and colleagues.
