Caron Levy (KD Rosabelle Klein Nursery School in Waverley), Sheva Messias (KD Pre-Primary School Linksfield) and Sally-Ann Knowles (KD Ariel) were among 200 delegates from 31 countries around the world.

The aim of the summit was to create a global network for Jewish educators to share ideas, discuss challenges and access educational materials.

The summit addressed Jewish education issues and ideologies around the world.  Education Minister Naftali Bennett and Dvir Kahane, director-general of the diaspora affairs ministry were some of the dignitaries at the conference.

Ideas about how to maintain Jewish identity in children and create a long-lasting sense of belonging to the Jewish community were discussed. It was emphasised that there needs to be a partnership between the eight million Jews living in the Diaspora and the Israeli ministries.

Said Levy: “The Ministry has promised us its support, and the partnerships we established must be maintained.”

Said Messias: “The mission that we have as educators for the next generation is essential in guaranteeing the future of the Jewish people. There will be no Jewish people without a Jewish education.”

Added Knowles: “As part of the inaugural summit, we are seen as the core group, with the intention to expand and empower additional Jewish educators through this network.”
