“Hishtalmus hamorim” is a fundamental ingredient to the success of teachers, and more importantly students, in the classroom. The MEF Workshop Series provides educators of all grade levels with professional development to hone teachers’ skills and re-energize their vital work. All of our curricula and lessons are imbued with the spirit and vision of Chabad Chinuch, based on tried and true educational methodology and are presented by leading Chabad educators with years of experience in the field. Schools and other educational institutions can enlist our services to provide their staff with high-quality workshops, in-service training, or supplemental professional development courses.

Designed for educators who are interested in building skills in a variety of topics, our workshops involve active learning instead of passive lecturing and are focused on outcomes and application. Topics can be explored in three or six hour sessions and are taught through exciting, hands-on activities with real world application. Teachers walk away with activities and techniques they can immediately implement in their classrooms. MEF’s team is committed to creating the best in-service experience for your school, and building your staff’s teaching skills for more successful learning for all.
