LOMED: Learning Opportunities for Milwaukee Educators

The Coalition for Jewish Learning provides professional development classes for teachers from all our Jewish schools through LOMED: Learning Opportunities for Milwaukee Educators. LOMED is also the Hebrew word for learning. A $300 stipend for completing 10 hours of training is available to all teachers participating in the program.

Classes taken during the summer can be used for the previous year stipend or towards the following year. For more information, contact Tziporah Altman-Shafer, 414-963-2718.
