Education Directors Network


The Education Directors Network (EDN) brings together educational leaders from Cleveland’s congregational and community-based part-time educational settings.  Meeting monthly during the school year, this group:

  • Focuses on issues that are more powerfully addressed community-wide                    (e.g., continued involvement of teens in Jewish education)
  • Plans community-wide programs for students and/or their families 
  • Works collaboratively to plan community-wide professional development                         for teachers and themselves
  • Stays abreast of general or Jewish educational trends


The EDN is led by member-elected officers, with the support of the

Jewish Education Center of Cleveland.


Current officers:

  • Chair, Debbie Chessin, Beth Israel - The West Temple
  • Vice-Chair, Rabbi Josh Foster, Congregation B'nai Jeshurun
JEC Staff Liaison: Rabbi Stacy Schlein
