Behrman House, the leading publisher of textbooks and digital learning materials for Jewish religious schools in North America, has entered a collaborative agreement with Israel’s Center for Educational Technology (CET). CET developed Israel’s premier and biggest online library encompassing over 1,000 Hebrew textbooks and information sources. The partnership will bring a first-of-its-kind online library to Jewish schools in the United States, giving students and educators access to both companies’ vast repository of educational offerings.

 

In April 2010, CET launched its Kotar digital platform to enable Jewish schools, institutions, and communities abroad to access English and Hebrew resources fast, simply, and in a user-friendly manner. The Kotar platform allows students to comment and share their ideas with teachers, other students, and at home with their families. Today it receives hundreds of thousands of hits per month, with tens of thousands of Israeli pupils using its textbooks on a daily basis. In addition to licensing the Kotar platform for North American religious schools, Behrman House will also develop curricular materials using the resources of CET’s Lexicon of Jewish Culture and Judaism, a vast repository of text materials, videos, and other educational materials, which CET will translate and Behrman House will adapt for the North American market.
