A message to the devoted Jewish Day School educators of North America:

The 2019 Prize was the last one that we will award.  We've been so privileged to gather incredible examples of teaching from you over the last 4 years.  We and your teacher colleagues have learned so much and have been so inspired by your work, and the Kohelet Prize database at koheletprize.org/database will be a lasting archive.  We thank you all for pushing Jewish education forward!
