Discussion Groups

Welcome to The Lookstein Center e-communities.

These e-discussion groups are designed to give educators and involved lay people the opportunity to carry on serious deliberations regarding issues in Jewish education as well as ask questions, and offers the unique opportunity to develop ongoing professional relationships. Over 5000 educators, academics, and lay people have been participating in the ongoing discussions since the year 1998.

All of the discussions are archived (Lookjed, Mifgashim, Announcements/Bookjed) and serve as an extraordinary resource for Jewish educators on a wide range of important issues.

To sign up to receive these discussions directly to your email, go here.

    Be a part of our online communities, the first of which, Lookjed, began in 1998 with just 25 members (currently, over 3000!). Lookjed and Mifgashim are forums for educational professionals of all levels— academics, principals, teachers, and even lay people—to introduce, reflect upon, and debate compelling topics of interest in the world of Jewish education
