From Rabbi Joe Eiduson - The ARJE

Heading off to Washington D.C.! A Time of Change!

From Sunday, January 14th through Thursday, January 17th, I will be attending the annual gathering of my professional organization, the Association of Reform Jewish Educators, otherwise known as the ARJE.  I currently serve as Vice President of Finance on the Executive Committee of the ARJE. This year the attendees at the ARJE Annual Gathering, through workshops, keynotes, and conversations with colleagues, we will reflect on how Successful Jewish educational leaders need to be effective, skilled, and capable change agents. The world around us is in a rapid state of change that doesn't stop at the gateways to our learning environments. Leaders must be able to see a 360-degree view of the changing landscape in which we work. Successful Jewish educators respond to the rapid pace of change by evaluating and determining whether to implement new ideas and programming in our learning communities.

The ARJE Annual Gathering in Our Nation’s Capital Will Offer Me:

  • Presentations and workshops with a variety of experienced and qualified professionals

  • Professional Development and study opportunities with ARJE colleagues and national experts

  • Creative and meaningful Tefilla (prayer) experiences

  • Unparalleled networking with colleagues and the chance to make new friends

  • Opportunities to get involved in the work of the ARJE

  • The chance to renew and refresh myself personally and professionally


  • I am grateful to the congregation for providing me the opportunity to attend what I hope will be a helpful and meaningful national conference.
