|Membership Team hard at work.|
NATE's leadership is composed of Governance which is our Board of Directors and the Operations Team which propels the logistics and actual programs of the organization forward. I have had the pleasure of being the Co-Chair of the Operations Team for the past 5 years with Lori Daitch and before that Debbie Niederman and Lisa Lieberman Barzilai and we have watched NATE develop and bring to maturation 5 Operations Teams which include Advocacy, Finance, Membership, Communications and Professional Learning. Each of these teams work on different aspects of our organization to insure that our programs and logistics are always top notch and on the cutting edge of the educational world.
We meet over 4 days, 2 days with Operations and then Board and Operations together, and 2 days with the Board. We had t'filot Monday with Rabbi Karyn Kedar and Cantor Ross Wolman at B'nai Jehoshua Beth Elohim and Tuesday with Rabbi Lisa Levenberg and Educator Cory Hermann.

We pray, meet, brainstorm, study and plan together how to make Jewish education better in our own congregations and institutions and all of our members' institutions. I am proud to be a part of this dynamic group and have been privileged to be a part of the leadership and look forward to the future. I am excited to see where NATE will take us and what adventures we have in our future.
See you in Chicago next year!
CAN'T WAIT FOR ISRAEL IN 2014!
