Meet our Fellows

“The Jewish Pedagogies Circle was a transformative experience. As experiential educators, we often focus on academic work or educational work, but we rarely have the opportunity to focus on both theory and practice in a Jewish context. M² made it possible for me to do just that.”

Taube Center for the Renewal of Jewish Life in Poland Foundation
“M² provided my team with a beautiful balance of theory and practice… They do an excellent job of balancing different modalities of learning, including interactive learning, chevruta learning, and time for reflection. The learning is serious and sophisticated – and worthy of educators’ time.”

“SEC was an absolutely transformative experience for me. It gave language for things that I was doing instinctually, and it also gave my work more meaning and purpose... M² has raised the bar for all kinds of programs that my organization provides. We use M² tools, methodologies, and pedagogies every single day.”
