Chabad Chinuch has changed in innumerable ways over the last ten years. MEF is proud to have played a significant role in shifting our community’s attention to concentrate on the big picture of our chinuch system while maintaining an unwavering focus on individual student success.
There is often a focus on the areas of Chinuch that need improvement, but in MEF’s newly published magazine SEEDS you’ll read some of the success stories.
Please help us grow them.
Over the past ten years, MEF has established ten different avenues of impact in the Chinuch community:
Training the Front Lines: In training programs that are cater to the Chassidishe Mechanech, we have equipped 163 teachers with tools for the most important job in the world.
Celebrating Chinuch: MEF has awarded twenty teachers with monetary gifts and highlighted the importance of educators through recognizing and celebrating their efforts.
Building Leadership: Leadership development programs gave 59 principals leadership the tools to set the tone for Chinuch in their schools.
Continuous Learning: 40 different customizable courses for teacher development, because when teachers keep learning, students succeed.
Cultivating Community: Gathering educators for events of chizuk, networking and inspiration helps empower educators on both an individual and communal level.
A Time to Recharge: 350 educators gather annually at the Kinus Mechanchei Chabad to connect and be inspired.
Raising the Standard: The Zekelman Standards for Chumash help thousands of students around the world learn how to learn.
A Vision for Chinuch: Advocating for the highest quality education for our students by establishing a culture of excellence in Chabad schools.
Supporting the System: Facilitating stronger school governance and infrastructure for successful Chinuch.
Planting Seeds of Change: Building the skills and capacity of individual Chinuch influencers sets off a chain reaction of impact far beyond MEF’s direct reach.
For 10 years, MEF has achieved unprecedented success in improving chinuch for 15,000 Chabad children in 167 schools around the world. Find out more at Charidy.com/mef
Our many innovative projects – teacher training programs, educational conventions, teacher awards, the Zekelman Standards – have realized incredible outcomes, and we are thrilled to begin reaping the fruits of our labor with enhanced learning in the classroom, inspired educators, and a community that is engaged and proud of their schools.
But our work is not done.
As chinuch has changed, so have we. Over the years, MEF has kept growing and reinventing ourselves to meet the changing needs of the children, teachers, and schools we serve. As chinuch has become more respected, with higher expectations of excellence, the goalposts have moved. Many of the issues we will face in the next ten years of chinuch will be different. No matter how difficult the challenge, MEF will continue to rise to the occasion.
For the next 24 hours, help us support those who will shape the next decade of Chinuch so that we can give our students the knowledge, spirit and bitachon to grow as confident champions of Yiddishkeit.
This is our moment. Let’s continue to FUEL THE GROWTH of Chabad Chinuch by investing in our children’s future today.
