Idea of the Day: Reward great Jewish teachers


JTA is soliciting readers’ ideas for reversing the tide of Jewish assimilation in America. Here’s today’s featured idea:

Identify the most inspiring and admired teachers of Judaism in the United States. Then, publicize them regionally and nationally, and give them cash prizes.

They may use the money to purchase teaching supplies that they could use to do even more good work.
