Like any profession, there are a variety of sub-specialties within the field of Jewish education that require specialized skill sets and training. Listening to the voices of educators in those areas of specialization will enable us to better understand what it takes to do the work, and what they see as the rewards and challenges. Understanding their experiences and motivations will enable policy makers and practitioners to design incentives to attract and retain others like them to the field. These articles offer reflections on special education in the context of Jewish education.
