With over 700 people 1,400 people representing almost 40 U.S. states and 4 continents already registered for CAJE 33, I want to add my voice to those who are eagerly anticipating a wonderful CAJE conference this August.

I’m particularly excited to be Co-Chairing CAJE 33 this year. One of the things Im focusing on is a new track called “Who we are”, designed to focus our collective attention on the growing diversity in our schools and shuls. Dr. Richard Freund, one of our Shabbat scholars, will play a load role in the “Who we are” track, teaching, for example, about the Jews of Latin America. Edward (Buzz) Bray will offer advice on sensitizing teachers to interfaith families and a converts’ path to Judaism.

As a Gay Jew who has not always felt included, I know what important roles teachers can play in fostering diversity and educating our communities.

Whoever you are, and wherever you’re from, I’m looking forward to welcoming you to CAJE 33.
