New web platform seeks to rethink pluralist Jewish education
Inspired by the Outschool platform and curated for a modern, multidimensional Jewish population, Truvie is primarily designed to reach children who are not currently engaged in any form of Jewish education. It will allow both individual educators and organizations to offer short courses in which learners enroll for a series of weeks rather than a school year or full semester, with advanced tools for teachers, parents and students.
“We have learned over the past year and a half that while various educational platforms have unique qualities, they all reflect the fundamental belief that the consumer will choose what is right for them,” said Susan Wachsstock, program manager at Jewish Education Project. “We wondered if we could design a market for Jewish education that would similarly support the level of choice, convenience and flexibility built into these platforms. We believe that Truvie is the realization of this vision as a market supporting pluralism, excellence and diversity.
Truvie is funded in part by the Jewish Community Response and Impact Fund (JCRIF).
