Rabbi Jim Rogozen
Rather than address day school affordability, the Conservative Movement needs to organize the national flow of all education dollars based on strategies that effectively cultivate and empower the next generation. Our kehillot, USY, Schechter, Ramah, JTS, and AJU, must see Jewish learning in all its forms as an integrated enterprise, and crucial to a common vision in which Conservative Judaism creates and inspires the passionate center of the Jewish People. Putting coordinated Jewish learning at the center of Conservative Jewish life will lead to greater focus and increased commitment among congregants, day school families, and lay leaders.
