Frequently Asked Questions


I already get your mailings—does this mean that 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. You can still get informational and e-community (e.g. Lookjed/Mifgashim) mailings if you are not a paying member.

How can I find out if my school is a member?

Ask us! Write to

If my school is a member, do I also have to sign up?

All faculty and staff of member schools are included in their school’s membership. If you would like your own individual membership in addition to your school’s membership, you may also sign up as an individual.

I am not a Jewish educator—can I still become a member?

Of course, and you will be in good company! Laypeople who are interested in Jewish education are welcomed to our community. We can, and should, learn from each other.

I still have some questions. Who can I contact?

Feel free to write to with any additional questions.
