Rely on ECE-RJ During This Time of New Beginnings

Rely on ECE-RJ During This Time of New Beginnings

At this time of new beginnings, you and your organization can rely on ECE-RJ to support any transitions or challenges that arise.
For directors, ECE-RJ can provide:

  • support during contract negotiations
  • professional development through yearly in-person conferences/kallot, monthly “Meet Up” webinars, and Listserv Live convenings
  • continued peer support with ongoing conversations through our Listserv

For teachers, ECE-RJ can 

  • connect teachers from across North America through a private Facebook group
  • provide professional development through yearly conferences/kallot, as well as monthly “Meet Up” webinars and themed Classroom Conversations

For congregations, ECE-RJ can:

  • support the lay leaders and congregational staff during placement for an Early Childhood Director, including offer a FREE three-month membership to the point person at a congregation who is going through placement
  • help with visioning and reorganizing programming for families with young children and early childhood programming
  • provide guidance on integrating the early childhood families into the life of the congregation

As for our organization, our 18th “chai” year is also a time of new beginnings.  We have re-imagined our brand, enhanced the professional learning opportunities offered, and revamped the consultative services offered to URJ Congregations. It has been a year of growth and changes within the organization while keeping the vision of ECE-RJ at the forefront: to foster a dynamic community of vibrant early childhood professionals rooted in Reform Judaism.
