2024 ARJE / ECE-RJ New Gathering

Pre-Conference Day of Learning

Yom Chadash – A New Gathering

B’tzelem Elohim – Reimagining Belonging in Our Jewish Spaces: Exploring Racial Justice & Intersectionalities

Beyond The Welcome Mat: Building A Culture Of Belonging

What is a culture of belonging, and why is this important?

Each early childhood center is a kehillah kedosha (sacred community) in and of itself. Every program has its own recipe for success – its “own secret sauce.”

Spend a day creating and sharing your ‘secret recipes’ for success that will give you all the ingredients for successful, strong relationships. Stirring up new ideas, mixing in the tried and true, and hearing from “Michelin” rated experts in the field, you will leave with a four-course meal of ideas – Lunch and Memphis-style cocktails and mocktails included.
