Family Education Task Force

The COJC&E’s Sh’arim Initiative (Prepared and Planned Programs, Expansion and Sh’arim grants) is overseen by the Family Education Task Force, a working committee of the Bureau of Jewish Education (BJE). Members of the Task Force include representatives from the movements and agencies that co-sponsor Sh’arim. The Chair of the Task Force is Terry Yoffie. The Task Force is staffed by Meir Sherer, Family Education Consultant at the BJE.  Task Force members include:


Terry Yoffie, FETF Chair

The Task Force reviews the training, institutional and professional support, and evaluation components of the project. It selects the Sh’arim sites and monitors the Initiative’s progress at each institution through a series of reports and site visits.
