The Value of Jewish Learning and Living in the 21st Century

Should Jewish engagement be free? As an expert in Jewish education and communal engagement, David Bryfman investigates the now-standard practice of providing so many Jewish products and services for free, and questions whether this is in our best interest in the long-term. Instead of giving things away, Bryfman argues that we need to find ways to give Jewish life value.

David Bryfman is currently the Chief Innovation Officer at The Jewish Education Project (formerly the Board of Jewish Education of Greater New York), where he focuses on bringing innovative strategies and creative thinking to Jewish education. David completed his Ph.D. in Education and Jewish Studies at New York Univeristy focusing on Jewish adolescent identity development and experiential Jewish education, and is an alum of the Wexner Graduate Fellowship Program. Previously, Bryfman worked in formal and informal Jewish educational institutions in Australia, Israel, and North America.
