Lippman Kanfer Institute

The Lippman Kanfer Institute is an action-oriented think tank for innovation in Jewish learning and engagement.  Its goal is to ensure that Jewish education remains relevant and effective in the challenging and rapidly changing environment of the 21st century.  The Lippman Kanfer Institute brings new thinking to important issues and opportunities facing Jewish education, such as the limited and episodic nature of educational participation among many Jews; the need to build powerful synergies among multiple forms of education; and the untapped potential of technology, the arts, social action and other media for Jewish communication, self-expression and engagement.

The Institute maintains a vigorous connection with front-line practitioners and draws on and seeks to enhance innovative work already underway that promises to dramatically extend Jewish education’s reach and impact. The Lippman Kanfer Institute pays special attention to learnings from beyond the field of Jewish education. The Lippman Kanfer Institute’s innovative ideas are brought to the field through vehicles such as conferences and colloquia, print and electronic publications; interactive media like wikis and blogs, and direct contact with educators and policy-makers working on the front lines.
The Lippman Kanfer Institute is an integral part of JESNA and contributes to its mission to improve and transform Jewish education by identifying and advocating for new and better ways of organizing and delivering Jewish education to communities, institutions, policy-makers, funders and practitioners. The work of the Lippman Kanfer Institute is supported by the Lippman Kanfer Family Foundation, based in Akron, Ohio.
