The Centropa Jewish Network (CJN) is one of the few associations of Jewish school educators in Europe. The goal of the CJN is to connect Jewish students across cultures, to provide professional development opportunities to educators in Jewish schools, and to create a support system for quality education in European Jewish schools. CJN teachers create opportunities for their students to learn from and work with Jewish school students in the US and Israel through cross-cultural projects they design around Jewish life and culture.
