92Y Shababa Network: Unlocking Jewish Wonder

Created by Karina Zilberman, 92Y Shababa Network is a training program for organizations that are ready to rethink and transform family engagement and Jewish life. The Shababa approach is a method that encourages leaders and educators to shift from a "playpen" mindset- where everything is enclosed and predictable- to a "playground" mindset- where collaboration is organic, and the unexpected is welcome.
