needs and learning disabilities.
ECJC provides the opportunity for every Jewish community in Europe to act with solidarity and responsibility and to ensure that fellow Jews in Europe will never be denied the most basic rights: to leave in times of war, or to receive food supplies, care and medical treatment in dire economic crises such as in 1995 in Ukraine or in 1997 in Bulgaria.
Our social welfare track leadership has seen that professional and volunteer exchanges build cooperation, promote consideration of alternate styles of solution-finding, provide avenues for professional development and will ensure that social and welfare services retain Jewish values and ethics.
Networking encounters and cross denominational / cross network training seminars on issues relevant to the different levels
Our objective is to help our affiliates explore common issues such as improving standards of education, teacher training methodologies, enriching curricula, student exchanges and broadening the vision of Jewish education policy. We bring Jewish Educators together, in an attempt to share practices that have proven successful and enable as many of our affiliates as possible to improve the education they provide to their youngsters while saving on research and uncertain strategies
The cornerstone of our Education programmes is Arachim. The conferences usually include training seminars and workshops, stimulating community educational strategists and directors, foundations supportive of education, teachers, informal educators or youth workers in order to approach educational themes creatively, develop new technical skills and exchange curricula and programming ideas.
