Online gatherings provide M² graduates with new skills, practical tools and educational concepts that are particularly appropriate to our current reality. New online workshops are offered every week and are facilitated by M² faculty and partner organizations. Join our gatherings to explore and brainstorm new ideas with other M² alumni.
BrainTrusts are opportunities to gather for short bursts of time, to problem solve and brainstorm. They are all centered around ideas and challenges that you bring to the group. BrainTrusts can be responsive to a challenge you have, or creative, for brainstorming new ideas.

Jewish tradition defines 4 New Years during every 12 month period, each of which starts a different type of cycle, reflecting a particular kind of new beginning. Using this idea as a frame we will project forward to our next 12 months, and consider what cycles we want to initiate, revisit and reflect on, especially given that the coming year promises to be full of unique challenges.

As an educator, who has been teaching for over 40 years (gevalt!), there are certain key concepts that I find myself returning to, again and again. They remind me of why I fell in love with Judaism. They are as needed and relevant today as they were in their Biblical (for the most part) inception. Join me for a source driven dive through my favorite “Jewish Top Ten” and, together, let’s remind ourselves of the greatness of the Jewish enterprise.

These two words have the power to transform our capacity to think limitlessly and boundlessly. What if we had the tools to think outside the box…to innovate…to transform space and environments? What if we could control our ability to think creatively? And what if we could reimagine the scope of our impact?
Combining a powerful process of mission-driven values-clarification with design thinking tools this workshop will help you surface extraordinarily innovative possibilities and incorporate them into your leadership and community.
