We Need Text People, Not Text Messages

Emily WalshFilmed at Wexner Institute

Jewish education is Jewish life.  Kids and families who have rich Jewish experiences with each other will likely infuse a love for Jewish thought and practice into all that they do.  We live in a crazy, busy world where technology and outside pressures demand so much from us.  Judaism can provide a framework through which learners face challenges of today, and can give them the tools to live a meaningful life rooted in faith, tradition and community.

Emily Walsh is a Jewish educator passionate about infusing text, ritual and action into the lives of families.  She’s currently the Assistant Director of Education for Youth and Family at B’nai Jeshurun in Manhattan, where she creates meaningful opportunities for families to learn, pray and do while building relationships with each other.  She holds two masters degrees in Jewish Education and Jewish Communal Service from Hebrew Union College.
