Shabbat Enhancement / Experiential Educators Grants


Beginning in 1999, AVI CHAI offered a grant initiative intended to stimulate Shabbatonim (weekend retreats) at Community and Solomon Schechter high schools, to help the schools promote Shabbat observance and Judaic commitment. The grant, administered through the Institute for Informal Jewish Education at Brandeis University, offered gradually decreasing grants for Shabbatonim at schools as well as professional development seminars for the experiential educators who ran them. As part of the Shabbat Enhancement/Experiential Educators grant, the IJE also developed a program database for experiential educators.
