The Matan Institutes

“After attending many conferences, I must say that this was two days of true meaningful, powerful learning. It is obvious that you all spent a lot of time pouring over our intake forms and applications because I felt like this seminar spoke directly to my needs. I told my colleagues that I was drinking everything up with a straw…I couldn’t gulp it down fast enough!”

Participant in the Inaugural Matan Institute for Education Directors, March 11-12, 2012

This year, 40,000 children are returning to their Jewish education programs where 550 of their teachers and 50 of their heads of school have had the opportunity to learn how to accommodate diverse learners in the classroom. Because of Matan’s increased and ongoing focus on professional development, 40,000 children – whether they learn “typically” or not – will experience a more meaningful Jewish education that is specifically tailored to their needs.

This year, in honor of Matan’s 12th year, we aim to raise $12,000 by 12.12.12 from supporters like you. These funds will go directly towards the next Matan Institute, which will engage a new cohort of Jewish educators and provide them with top-notch training, ongoing mentoring and additional support as they strive to make their programs accessible to all children.

Thank you in advance for your contribution.
