What We Do

Education Services: moving professionals in Jewish education forward.

Education Services is a unique program housed at the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle. The program offers professional and pedagogical development services for our community's teachers working in Jewish education. We work with educators in early childhood centers, Jewish day schools, and in congregational supplementary schools to ensure that whichever path families choose for their children's needs, they will have the highest quality Jewish education possible.
