For the first time ever, CKids and Merkos 302 will be hosting a three-day retreat for shluchim, with dual programming focusing on Hebrew School and camp leadership.
This January 14 (Teves 27th), participants will come together to explore successful tools for management, fundraising, education and marketing, as well as marriage, parenting and hiskashrus. Speakers and workshops will address concerns across the spectrum, from best practices in Hebrew reading, choosing a curriculum and the everyday challenges of running an organization to successfully transmitting values and the very definition of “success” in Jewish education.
For those with children, the retreat will provide babysitting services as well as a day camp run by MyShliach, enabling parents to enjoy the full array of programs confident in the fact their children will be cared for and entertained.
“I’m so excited for the upcoming CKids Retreat. It will be an incredible experience to learn from the pros and collaborate with other Shluchim in the same field as us,” shared Mrs Chana Gansburg Toronto, Ontario.
Led by Rabbi Moshe Kotlarsky, who will personally address and farbreng with the shluchos, the event will feature experienced lecturers, educators and shluchos. Hebrew School presenters include Mrs. Sarah Alevsky, Mrs. Chavie Ash, Mrs. Chana Gansburg and Dr. Chana Silberstein. CGI presenters include Dr. Hillary Buff, Rabbi Sender Engel, Rabbi Zalmy Kudan and Mr. Tom Rosenberg.
A widely respected speaker and writer, Chana Silberstein, earned her PhD in developmental psychology and has spent many years researching and writing on Jewish education in its variety of forms. She will also be available for private consultation to provide her professional advice and expertise.
Drawing on her experiences as a behavioral therapist, school psychologist, camp director, executive coach, executive director and consultant, Dr. Hilary Buff, PhD, PsyD, will lead workshops on providing the essential care and support to help every child succeed.
A keynote address to the camp leadership program be will be given by Tom Rosenberg, CEO & president of the American Camp Association, in which he will share tried and true marketing wisdom.
