When General Education Research Informs the Teaching of Sacred Text
We in the Jewish education community are really beginning to dive into general education research when it comes to teaching (and learning) sacred text. The Mandel Center’s recent two-day conference on developing independent readers of Tanach was a wonderful experience of how productive such a gathering can be—especially when conducted with a group of talented, thoughtful and committed educators.

Creating a Pedagogical Vision for Tanakh Education
This spring, the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Studies in Jewish Education at Brandeis University will bring together a group of scholars and practitioners of elementary Tanakh education and the broader field of literacy education to begin formulating a pedagogical vision for Tanakh education. Over the course of two days, in dialogue with renowned literacy scholar Claude Goldenberg, we will ask, “How do we help students become independent readers of Tanakh? What instructional practices and pedagogies best promote these various facets of reading comprehension?” Beginning this conversation is an important next step to building a unified educational culture across the landscape of North American day schools. While the roster for this small conference is now fixed, we look forward to sharing the insights of this conference with the larger community.

The Jewish of Jewish Day Schools at the Prizmah Conference

The Second International Symposium on Israel Education
The Second International Symposium on Israel Education will bring together Jewish educators and decision-makers in a position to impact significantly on how and why Israel might be integrated into the educational environments with which they are involved for four days (July 17-20, 2017) of dialogue, encounters, field trips and reflection. Its underlying rationalization is the conviction that effective Israel education means facilitating exploration into the meaning of Israel in one’s own life, enabling students to make sense of Israel for themselves in a manner that will foster a personal and enriching relationship with the Jewish state while also motivating them to engage in building the Jewish future

Who will Guide, Nourish and Love the Next Generation?
Author Rachel Raz
I shared my personal story earlier this fall, as the opening introduction to a panel I offered at the Israeli-American Council (IAC)) national conference in Washington DC. At this conference over 2100 American Jews and Israeli-Americans asked questions about identity formation and the future of our community and children. We explored ways to connect American Jews with Israeli-Americans and worked together to strengthen our connection to Israel.

Limmud FSU: from Seedlings to a Forrest
Author Dan Brown
They came from Britain and Germany; and from Albania, France and the Netherlands. Israel, Russia, Ukraine and the U.S. too. In all, almost 700 participants (representing 18 countries!) from across the generational landscape disembarked – just a short drive from Windsor Castle – for the first-ever Pan-European Limmud FSU Conference. And like the 1st events held in Los Angeles, New York and Ontario over the past decade, it was a smashing success.

Yad Vashem Summer Seminar for Educators in both Formal and Informal Jewish Supplemental Programs
The Yad Vashem seminar for educators in Jewish Supplemental Programs is an eight day, June 20-28, 2017, creative program focusing on helping educators develop the skills needed to create programs and content for Shoah studies that can be used in a variety of settings and to deliver those programs in the most compelling way possible. The seminar is historically based, with interdisciplinary approaches to enable the educators to understand the Shoah in its complexity. Using the unique Yad Vashem pedagogical approach, modeled lessons, and collegial interaction, participants will be empowered to create individual Shoah Study programs tailored to their specific supplemental program. This program is highly subsidized and space is very limited. In order to be considered eligible for this seminar you must currently be involved in delivering educational programming in a Synagogue, Jewish Educational Program, Jewish Youth Movement, or Jewish Community Resource Center. Yad Vashem will cover all tuition costs associated with the seminar; including Hotel accommodations, (double occupancy / Half board), for the duration of the program, food, transportation from the hotel to the seminar and back, and all extracurricular activities.
