Welcome to the new home for all of our Network’s news.  What’s here?



This will be your spot for up to the minute information about the NRJE, including conference and registration updates, Journal of Jewish Education information, fellowship and scholarship information, and other news you can use. Note that some of this content may appear in other places on our site, including on our front page.

The NRJE Blog     

What’s a blog?  A blog (a truncation of the expression “weblog“)[1] is a discussion or informational website published on the World Wide Web consisting of discrete, often informal diary-style text entries (“posts”). Posts are typically displayed in reverse chronological order, so that the most recent post appears first, at the top of the web page. (content from Wikipedia)

The NRJE Blog is our newsletter. Visit this space for news from our Network, updated approximately quarterly, with content from our Network Chair, conference Chairpersons, representatives from our larger community, news from various academic programs, and information about upcoming research opportunities, convenings and conferences outside our Network.
