“I had to live, breathe, and write my character”: Character Selection and Student Engagement in an Online Role-Play Simulation
This study explores the relationship between character selection and student engagement in the Jewish Court of All Time (JCAT), an online and classroom-based role-playing simulation of a current events court case with Jewish historical roots. Analyzing students’ responses to three questions posed in an out-of-character JCAT discussion forum, we tracked indications of their different types and styles of engagement and how they were associating this engagement with their character roles.

Moot Beit Din Goes Virtual
Moot Beit Din provides high school students with a firsthand look at the inner workings of the Jewish legal system and helps them hone their critical thinking skills by applying the ancient wisdom of Halakhah (Jewish law) to some of the most significant ethical issues of our time. Student teams are assigned a topic and collaborate to craft a written decision and oral argument based on rabbinic sources. The 2018 Moot Beit Din will be a virtual competition, with teams submitting written decisions and video recordings of their oral arguments to a panel of distinguished judges. There will also be a Q & A component in which teams pose and respond to questions about each other's oral arguments on a digital platform.

Networked but No System: Educational Innovation among Bay Area Jewish Organizations
A widely read article from this journal explores innovative Jewish educational programs, initiatives, and organizations, arguing that these share a comdmitment to being “learner-centered” and recommending that a system be created to foster collaboration among them (Woocher, 2012). Using five San Francisco Bay Area-based organizations—BimBam, Kevah, Sefaria, Urban Adamah, and Wilderness Torah—I test these ideas, finding that some elements of innovation are accurately described. However, some organizations utilize an educational focus beyond Jewish community that demands deeper exploration. And while these organizations share networks, there is little evidence of the creation of a larger Jewish educational system.

Testing the Waters: New Summer Teen Experiences
There was something fishy about the Sci-Tech Israel program. Just ask Robert, a rising junior at a Westchester high school, who joined 28 other teens from the New York area and around the country for three weeks on this Israel adventure. The teens met Israeli science and technology experts while exploring the country from Sinai to Eilat and celebrating Shabbat. The teens also learned about marine biology and ecosystems when they visited the National Institute of Oceanography in Haifa on the coast of the Mediterranean.
