The Bergman Seminar for Progressive Jewish Educators

The Bergman Seminar for Progressive Jewish Educators is an intensive 10-day program for Progressive Jewish Educators from around the world, combining classroom and text study with site visits in Jerusalem and around Israel that will bring the texts and ideas to life.

The seminar’s multidisciplinary curriculum incorporates several conceptual approaches to culture, spirituality, language, history and memory. The seminar will focus on the multitude of Jewish narratives inside and outside the Land of Israel, and play off the creative tension that has existed between Israel and Diaspora communities throughout Jewish history as well as today. The faculty will include some of Israel’s finest teachers, offering an extraordinary opportunity for intellectual exploration.

IMPJ Food Drive

Sharing the light of Hanukkah
Food insecurity is at an all-time high in Israel. You can minimize the gaps in Israeli society and promote social justice by donating now to distribute food packages to those in need. The Keren b'Kavod department of IMPJ runs a holiday food drive and we can help.
Early donations will ensure that more families receive these essential food packages.

The Israel Movement for Reform and Progressive Judaism (IMPJ) distributes holiday food packages to all sectors of Israeli society, regardless of religion or status.
The need is especially great this winter, with loss of employment and reduction in social programs due to the Coronavirus.
CDN $72 provides a basket of food and vouchers for toys and books for struggling families of all denominations.

Your donation matters. Give now.
