Ayeka is set to train leaders in the Reform and Conservative movements at their upcoming North American conferences. Ayeka’s founder, Aryeh Ben David, will be travelling to Orlando, Florida to lead a session at the URJ Biennial Conference, taking place from Nov. 4-8, on the topic of “Jewish Soulful Education: The Ayeka Way for Professional Staff”. Over 5,000 attendees are expected to participate in the conference, making it one of the largest gatherings of Jews in North America.
