About Jen Glaser

Hi. I am the founder and Director of 'Engaging Texts'. As an educator I have been involved in Philosophy for Children for around 30 years - and I have been involved in informal and formal Jewish education even longer. Four years ago I decided to bring these two passions together through developing the field of "Philosophical Inquiry in Jewish Education". I am so happy to have met, and been able to work with, so many of you in this process. My goal over the coming years is to continue to develop and expand this field. I would say more about why, but you can rad about that on the website. I also want to say that this endeavour would not have been possible without the generous support of both the Covenant Foundation and the JECC in Cleveland Ohio, for which I am very grateful!
