MOFET International Writing Competition for Students of Hebrew as an Additional Language on the Theme of "A Ray of Light in the Dark"
Every year before Chanukah, the International Forum for Hebrew Teachers organizes a Hebrew writing competition for Hebrew students on the subject of "Or - Light". This year, we decided to “shine our countenance” on a wider audience of Hebrew learners, also receiving works from students whose teachers are not members of the forum. In addition, the competition was held for the first time in cooperation with the Hebrew Writers' Association, and for the first time awards were also awarded. The works were sent from around the world (including Israel), and the best were chosen by professional judges, members of the International Forum of Hebrew Teachers.

Challenging Linguistic Purism in Dual Language Bilingual Education: A Case Study of Hebrew in a New York City Public Middle School
Dual language bilingual education (DLBE) programs, in which students are taught language and academic content in English and a partner language, have dramatically grown in popularity in U.S. schools. Moving beyond the teaching of Spanish and Chinese, DLBE programs are now being offered in less commonly taught languages and attracting new student populations. Based on qualitative research conducted in a New York City public middle school that recently began a Hebrew DLBE program, we found that this program, in its inception and design, challenges traditional definitions of DLBE and offers new understandings about bilingual education for the 21st century.

Israelis Are Flocking to this Silicon Valley Community Center
Author Ben Sales
With a foot in the tech world and another in Jewish culture, the JCC in Palo Alto has transformed itself into a hub for local Israeli expatriates. Located on a sprawling 8.5-acre campus, the place known formally as the Oshman Family Jewish Community Center has done what many mainstream American Jewish institutions are still attempting: attracting American Israelis, numbering in the hundreds of thousands, to programs at a legacy organization.

Hebrew and Jewish Peoplehood
This past week I was invited along with leaders of universities, college campus programs, Israel trips, camps and other educational programs to participate in a discussion on elevating the status of Hebrew language in the North American Jewish community. Over the years, it has been pointed out that North American Jews, more so Americans, do not have the same level of Hebrew proficiency as do Jews in other countries. Some opine that this is because English is the lingua franca across the globe. Others believe that Hebrew language proficiency is not essential for participating in Jewish life in North America.

The Graduate(s): The Harvests of Israel’s Integrated Multicultural Bilingual Education
Advocates of integration and cross cultural contact believe schools have a seminal role to play in perpetuating or breaking the cycle of violence and division in conflicted societies. Historically, segregated schools are the norm in such societies. An alternative educational model is provided through integrated schools—schools where children from different national, ethnic, or religious groups are deliberately educated together. Integrated schools are believed to be essential in contributing to the healing of the wounds that afflict conflicted societies, easing the path toward peace, reconciliation, and integration.
