JWA's Webinars are geared primarily toward teachers, and if you teach Jewish genealogy, you are a teacher! But the information is often useful to researchers also, and the Webinars are open to everyone. I find these Webinars to be interesting educational opportunities at a very reasonable price (free!).
The second Webinar in JWA's 2012-2013 series is "Historical Sources in Jewish Education." Registration is free. The Webinar is being offered at two times: Tuesday, January 8, at 1:00 p.m. EST, and Wednesday, January 9, at 8:00 p.m. EST. Register here.
The first Webinar in the 2012-2013 series was "Butchers, Babushkas, and Consumer Activism." It was about the 1902 kosher meat boycott in New York City, which I had not heard of previously. I was very surprised to learn that a bunch of immigrant Jewish housewives, many of whom did not speak English, organized a boycott. A recording of the November 13 Webinar is available on the JWA Web site.
