1. New Approaches to Teen Education and Engagement—A series of studies released over the past two years have provided new examples of how innovative approaches to Jewish teen education and engagement can influence the lives of adolescents during this critical time of identity development. Join the Jim Joseph Foundaton to discuss research findings and a new community of practice for local and national funders of teen education and engagement.

2. Your Jewish Philanthropy Roadmap—JFN and Jewish Communal Fund discuss this new resource to help people navigate their charitable journey. For new and veteran funders, the Roadmap tool uses challenging questions to help you be more intentional and strategic in your giving.
