Mazel Tov, Jeni!

Mazel Tov to Jeni Clancy, our Jewish Family Programs and Engagement Manager, who received the 2020 Helen Diller Family Award for Excellence in Jewish Education for her work in Early Childhood! Jeni manages inspiring programs for families, including Shababa (a weekly Shabbat celebration for families with young ones), The Nest (a gathering place for parents of 0 to 3 year olds), and special family celebrations around the Jewish holidays. In these unique times, Jeni has translated her programming into the virtual realm, with online programs designed to inspire, engage, and connect families with each other, as well as Jewish practices and traditions.

We also congratulate the other award winners: Efrat Simhi-Aloni in the Day School category; Lisa Bialkin in the Congregational and Supplementary category; and Isaac Zones in the Jewish Communal and Experiential category.

Celebrate and honor Jeni and the other recipients along with us at the Helen Diller Family Awards for Excellence in Jewish Education Virtual Event Celebration on Wednesday, September 16 at 4:00 pm. The event will also include a special keynote from with Rabbi Ed Feinstein on the topic “Educating for Resilience–The Lessons of Jewish History.” Registration required; please RSVP by Thursday, September 10.
