When our teachers learn, our students learn, get excited and benefit!


CJE’s Professional Development & School Services department impacts approximately 2,700 students each year through its work with hundreds of teachers, principals and lay leaders at synagogues, preschools and day schools in the Greater Palm Beaches.


Each year the CJE in collaboration with school directors organizes and facilitates a professional development conference where teachers in congregational schools gather to deepen their teaching skills. 


In addition, our community organizes and hosts an annual Jewish Early Childhood conference for teachers in Jewish preschools.


The "Summer Institute” is a week long professional development program held each June.


The CJE’s “School Twinning” program uses interactive lessons to connect teachers and students in the Greater Palm Beaches with teachers and students in HATZOR - our sister region in Israel.


The CJE hosts CJEiLearn, a website that provides resources that help teachers integrate digital technology in the Jewish classroom.


Friedman CJE facilitates two professional Jewish networks.

The Early Childhood Educators Council and the Educators' Council are forums for leaders in Jewish education to advocate for, plan, organize, and implement programs and activities that promote and improve the quality of all of our Jewish schools in the greater Palm Beaches.
