Dozens of Jewish day schools and community organizations from across North America and overseas will be in attendance to meet and conduct interviews with candidates. Participating organizations include University Jewish Chaplaincy, Organization for the Resolution of Agunot, the Orthodox Union, Aish NY, Fresko Foods, Camp Mesorah, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, Ohel, Camp Kaylie and Areyvut.

More than 52 schools will be participating, coming from 11 states spanning the West and East Coasts as well as the South.
