Who We Are


CAJE is the Jewish educational leadership agency for the Greater Miami Jewish Community. Founded in 1944, CAJE impacts five areas of the Jewish educational scene:

·         Early Childhood Education

·         Congregational Education

·         Day School Education

·         Teen Education and Engagement

·         Adult Jewish Learning and Growth

CAJE is led by its Chair, Barbara Black Goldfarb, and by a group of committed board and committee members, representing all segments of the Miami Jewish community.

CAJE’s professional team is led by Rabbi Arnold D. Samlan, who leads a group of talented Jewish educators with deep and diverse experience and knowledge.

CAJE builds on its strength of using leadership development and professional learning as a lever for impactful change in Jewish education. Recent and current initiatives involve collaborating with partners that include United Way, Avi Chai Foundation, Partnership for Excellence in Jewish Education, iCenter, Shalom Learning, Targum Shlishi and others. New initiatives are in the works that will bring the power of 21st century Jewish learning to more of our educational partners in the field. Among the ideas in the works are expansion of blended learning, “flipped classroom” models, recruitment and retention of day school students, teen philanthropy opportunities, Jewish learning for young adults, and approaches to education that reach students across the greatest possible range of abilities.
