“Two of the invaluable resources that come from being part of a Matan cohort include being connected to a network of like minded professionals in the field who can be springboards for ideas and sharing best practices, as well as a mentor who will visit you onsite and work with you to identify goals for your specific Jewish educational context. It is really a gift to have access to these resources!”
