Jewish educators recognized for their innovations in the classroom

Krause, who has worked in education for more than 50 years, teaches Holocaust, comparative religions, comparative Judaism, holidays and other subjects, as well as prayer, to seventh- and eighth-graders at Brandeis Hillel Day School in San Francisco.

The recipients receive a $1,000 cash price from the local agency for Jewish education or federation, which is then matched by a $1,500 stipend for professional development from the Grinspoon Foundation and Jewish Life Network/Steinhardt Foundation. Recipients will also be honored at the first Jewish Education Leadership Summit in February.
