Peter Geffen, Founder of KIVUNIM and The Abraham Joshua Heschel School in New York, has devoted his career in Jewish education to elevating Jewish identities informed and driven by social justice, creating educational models in which knowledge of Jewish communities around the world propels individual and collective growth and community building for next generations.
Covenant in Action - adDRESSING women's lives
adDRESSING women's lives, an innovative educational initiative at The Weber School in Atlanta, pairs students with senior women in an oral history project with an artful and cross-generational twist. After interviewing the women about their lives, students design dresses that reflect these women's silent, but very real impact on their families and communities. Spearheaded by Covenant Award recipient and educator Barbara Rosenblit, along with Sheila Miller, the school's arts educator, the program has attracted national attention for its educational value, uniqueness and effectiveness.
