You spoke, we listened.
Introducing new membership plans from The Lookstein Center.
You told us about rising costs, shrinking budgets. You told us about the need for greater accessibility to educational research and materials. We went back to the drawing board to see how we could help. Our restructured membership plans offer more professional services for less. Read more below.

I already get your mailingsódoesn't this mean I am already a member?
Not necessarily. You are only a member if you (or your school/organization) has paid membership dues in the past 12 months. If you are not sure if you fall into this category, contact us at
I am not a Jewish educatorócan I still become a member?
Of course! Laypeople who are interested in Jewish education are welcomed to our community. We can, and should, learn from each other.
If my school is a member, do I also have to sign up?
If your school is a member then all faculty and staff are members for the duration of the membership period; you do not need an individual membership. If you are not sure, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will tell you if your school is already a member.
