Jennifer Newfeld

B’nai Amoona Director of Congregational Learning Jennifer Newfeld has been awarded the title of “Conservative Jewish Educator” (‘CJE’), a new credential that the Jewish Educators Assembly (JEA) introduced to recognize select educators for attaining a standard of achievement in the field of Conservative Jewish education. The goal of this certification is to recognize those elite educators who have achieved the highest professional standards as a mark of honor and to encourage ongoing professional development among colleagues. Individuals must have advanced formal education, at least five years of administrative experience, a demonstrated commitment to Conservative Jewish education, contributions to the field such as curriculum or program development, projects; and/or continued academic learning.
