What is JOPLIN?
An acronym for Jewish Outreach Professionals Log-In Network, JOPLIN is a website and listserve open to all who engage in or supervise the varied forms of outreach to unaffiliated and intermarried Jews, including Jewish educators, social workers, federated and communal professionals, clergy, volunteers, and lay leaders.
By sharing lines of cross-disciplinary communication, JOPLIN broadens the conversation and increases communal understanding. Much like a great musical work (be it Janis or Scott), JOPLIN brings together diverse elements and an understanding of what came before it to create a new, harmonious entity that, if powerful enough, can change the existing society. If you are a Jewish professional or leader interested in growing your Jewish community, contact us to learn more, and of course, check this space again soon.
