Learning About Learning: A Conversation with Dr. Anna Hartman
Children’s Theories About Judaism

February 8, 1-1:30 p.m.
Via Zoom / Free / Register at

Children’s ideas about the world are rich, nuanced, sometimes amusing and surprising, and for Anna Hartman, always fascinating. In this session, she will share her doctoral research in the field of early childhood Jewish education, in which she explores the theories about Judaism that are held by young children, and provides a window into their process of exploring and participating in Jewish life.

Anna Hartman is a MA Mentor in the School for Jewish Education and Leadership at American Jewish University; the Director of Early Childhood Excellence at the Jewish United Fund (JUF); and the Director of the Paradigm Project. She was a 2021-22 fellow of the Mandel Center Doctoral Fellows Program. Anna holds a master’s in Jewish educational leadership from Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion and is a doctorate in Jewish Education at the Jewish Theological Seminary. Anna is a recipient of the Pomegranate Prize, JUF’s Samuel A. Goldsmith Young Professional Award, and the Covenant Award.
