Transforming the field of Jewish supplementary education by bringing online and blended learning models, curriculum design, and professional development to congregational schools in North America

ShalomLearning is transforming the field of Jewish supplementary education by providing blended learning models (combining online digital media with traditional classroom methods), religious school curriculum design, and professional development to congregational schools throughout North America. The education technology entrepreneurs behind ShalomLearning are not only furthering the evolution of Jewish education but also creating meaningful relationships between educators, families, and their Jewish communities. 

ShalomLearning empowers educators to navigate its Learning Management System platform. There, teachers can share their ideas and resources and take advantage of advancements in education technology to better engage students in active learning. The organization pairs teachers new to the platform with seasoned veterans, provides on-site workshops, monthly professional development webinars, instructional videos, and a summer educational conference. For kids, ShalomLearning is changing the perception of supplementary school education—by making it relevant and fun while helping them to become literate in the holidays, life cycle, ritual and values of their heritage, and comfortable in the language of prayer. The program is flexible; it can be used in a traditional or virtual classroom in a one- or two-day-a-week program, and it’s self-paced so kids can work at their own speed. Parents and students have responded positively to the engaging programming, which features pluralistic Jewish values and blended Hebrew learning. ShalomLearning is meeting the evolving educational needs of today’s Jewish community and planting seeds to grow that field even more.
