Forming Connections for a Brighter, More Meaningful, Stronger Future. This year’s conference is designed to connect you as an individual and as an educator to other people, resources, and big ideas. According to Jewish tradition, our relationships can be categorized into three types of connections or relationships:Ben Adam Le’atzmo — Between a person and one’s self , Ben Adam Le’chavero — Between a person and others, and Ben Adam La’makom — Between a person and the Divine.

New technologies are flooding the market, and new visual art and music are filling our lives constantly. Some creations make a larger impact than others. Do we allow ourselves, as educators, to create? Explore? Make mistakes? Improve? Grow? Partner with God? Do we, as educators, create an environment in our schools where our children can feel safe to create, explore and follow the example set for us in the first book of the Torah.

In a radically evolving world, where science, mathematics and technology are at the heart of that change, it is our duty more than ever to stimulate curiosity and engage children in taking an interest in their environment and the workings of nature. At the same time, it is very important to spiritually nourish and support them as they proceed on this journey.
