For as long as I've been in education, I've had a really big vision for what it could be. I knew that education as a whole was not working for the students of today, and Jewish education was even further behind. I believed Jewish education could (and should) raise the bar in all areas – engaging students in authentic learning so that they could build and strengthen their Jewish identities while also developing the skills necessary to thrive in the world of tomorrow (and make it a better place for everyone!).
I've had the honor of working with many great educational organizations over the last 20 years -- synagogues, schools, central agencies, institutes, start-ups, even starting and running my own school -- but my big vision for education exceeds beyond any one single institution. In order to have the impact I want, I realized I needed to take this vision farther and wider, involving more people doing more cool things.
Hence Sarah Rubinson Consulting and Contracting.
Sarah Rubinson Consulting and Contracting helps individuals and organizations involved in progressive Jewish education ideate and launch the innovative ideas that they don’t have the manpower to imagine and execute on their own.
I have been so fortunate to connect with such amazing people during my many years in this field, and they have all played such an important role in my getting to today. I am excited to keep connecting to, learning from, and working with more amazing individuals and organizations who are doing exciting work!
