Francine Lavin Weaver presents the Grinspoon-Steinhardt Award for Excellence in Jewish Education to Morah Yehudis Fishman

On Sunday, nearly 100 Boulder-area Jewish educators gathered for this year’s Chidush workshop and the presentation of the Grinspoon-Steinhardt award.

The workshop featured  PassageWorks Experiential Training, led by Batya Greenwald. Following the training, Morah Yehudis Fishman was honored as this year’s Grinspoon-Steinhardt Award for Excellence in Jewish Education, an award given in partnership with JESNA.  The award “recognizes, honors and supports outstanding classroom Jewish educators on the local level” and comes with an education stipend for professional development. 18 Pomegranates is the local matching sponsor of this award.

Also at today’s program, Amy Atkins of 18 Pomegranates announced that materials will be available as a follow-up to last year’s Service Learning workshop, to encourage educators to participate in sharing their programs with the community through the Boulder Jewish News’ Mitzvah Directory and at the Boulder Jewish Festival.

Look for Morah Yehudis’ teaching in an upcoming post, and enjoy the photos from today!

About Staff

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
