Shira Hecht-Koller
The Executive Director of Dorot Foundation
Jewish Pedagogies Research Fellowship, Cohort 2018-2019
"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.”

(2020-2021)
"M² gave me the opportunity to be part of a lively Beit Midrash where I could think critically about pedagogy and the Jewish tradition behind it, and actualize my research. M² gave me the space to explore, experiment, connect with others, and find my own voice.”
