The 2017 URJ Biennial
ECE-RJ was pleased to be a part of the 2017 URJ Biennial. The ECE-RJ booth was a central meeting point for congregations looking for information on posting positions, best practices in terms of compensation & benefits, and how to engage young families in their congregations as well as a gathering spot for members to meet, collaborate and share ideas. Conversations centered around professional development opportunities, upcoming Israel Experience (February 2018), programming for families with young children, and supporting colleagues in the work that they do. Cindy Terebush, author of Teach the Whole Preschooler: Strategies for Nurturing and Developing Minds, Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg, author of Nurture the Wow: Finding Spirituality in the Frustration, Boredom, Tears, Poop, Desperation, Wonder, and Radical Amazement of Parenting, and Marilyn Gootman, Author of The Joys and Oys of Parenting: Insight and Wisdom from the Jewish Tradition visited the ECE-RJ Booth for conversation, questions, and book signings.
