Bob Sherman announces my new job!

To our Congregational Community:
I am writing to inform you that Cyd Weissman, Director of Congregational Learning at The Jewish Education Project for the past 6 years, has accepted a new position as Director of The Reconstructionist Learning Network at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College in Philadelphia. We are incredibly proud of everything Cyd has accomplished with us and excited for her as she takes on a new role within the field of Jewish education.
Many of you know Cyd well. She has been an integral member of our leadership team, helping to design the way we approach sparking and spreading innovation in congregational education. She has also taken a lead in the redesign of our whole agency as it repositioned itself locally and nationally. Her impact on our agency, on congregations throughout New York and on the field is deep and profound. The Coalition of Innovating Congregations, the network which she established, continues to grow and create Jewish education that makes a difference in the lives of today's children and families. The Jewish Education Project team is fully committed to supporting and growing our work and influence in this vital sector building on her successes.
In her new role on the RRC faculty, Cyd will be building upon her experience, research and expertise derived from her time at The Jewish Education Project to bring dynamic learning to Reconstructionist congregations and their schools across North America.
Cyd will continue to be part of The Jewish Education Project network of innovative educators and we are already thinking of ways to work to accomplish shared goals and together strengthen the field. I know you will join me in wishing Cyd great success in her new position. Cyd will remain with us through the month of July before leaving to take up her new position.
