Event Details


Are you looking to remodel your religious school Madrachim program? You're not alone! Join colleagues and URJ staff members for a round table discussion where we'll dive into different Madrachim programming models being used by URJ congregations. We will have a loose agenda for the conversation, but we encourage you to bring all of your questions, challenges, and ideas to discuss as a group.
