This US Preschool Is So Israeli it May as Well Be Tel Aviv
Author Ben Sales
Tamar Pinto runs what may be the only fully Hebrew preschool in the country, explicitly meant for children of Israelis in America. Jewish preschools across the US integrate varying levels of Hebrew into the day, if only to teach holidays and prayers. But at Gan Gurim, though many of the children were born in the United States and may well live here for most of their lives, you’ll have trouble finding English – or American child-rearing norms – anywhere.

Epic Quest to Document 'Miracle' of Hebrew Language
Author Mike Smith
Gabriel Birnbaum, 66, is a senior researcher helping document and define every Hebrew word ever -- from ancient texts such as the Dead Sea Scrolls to the contemporary novels of Israeli literary figures like Amos Oz. It is a mammoth task under way since 1959, and even though a milestone has been reached on the digital project, there are still many years to go. Called the Historical Dictionary Project at Israel's Academy of the Hebrew Language, it will serve as an invaluable resource for scholars, writers and linguists. But it will also act as an anchor for Hebrew, the ancient language revived in spoken form in the 19th century after some 1,700 years.

Lehavin U’lehaskil: A Curriculum That Trains our Students to Become Independent Readers of Tanach
A comprehensive program called Lehavin U’Lehaskil (To Understand and Discern) has been developed to help students gain a mastery of the Hebrew Tanach text. It focuses on providing teachers a systematic approach to teach our students how to learn Tanach independently in the original Hebrew text. It empowers children by teaching them the skills needed to become confident, independent learners of Tanach, through decoding and translating words, phrases and verses from the Biblical text. This curriculum provides standards and assessments, and a clear, organized, systematic approach to teach the children skills, high frequency words and sharashim (verb roots). Workbooks, Teacher Editions, digital versions, and various manipulatives are used to slowly teach – step by step – all the skills needed so that all children – on any level – can achieve mastery of the language of Tanach.

Working Together to Further Jewish Education
After working mostly in Jewish education for the last 15 years, I recently had the opportunity to attend the “International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) conference. This is the largest gathering of educators from around the world. The conference, which this year took place in San Antonio, Texas was an opportunity to meet, share, and collaborate with fellow educators from every educational circle imaginable. During my three days at the conference, I had a chance to discuss true educational challenges with educators from every corner of the globe and to embark on some true collaboration experiences.

DJLN Educator Spotlight: Blending in Hebrew with Meirav Kravetz
In this Educator Spotlight, Meirav Kravetz shares what she learned in our JBlend Miami program and how blended learning, personalization, and data are helping students succeed in Hebrew at all levels. I use Bishvil Ha-Ivrit, an online platform that expands and enriches the learning from the physical materials. For example, the platform enhances and supports the learning with audio recordings, interactive technology, documentary films, and more. The students can speak, read, write, and listen to spoken Hebrew, and learn about daily life in Israel, Jewish tradition and history, and general world knowledge.

Enhancing Language and Print-Concept Skills by Using Interactive Storybook Reading in Kindergarten
The effectiveness of a short interactive storybook-reading intervention programme delivered by a kindergarten teacher to develop language and print-concept skills was examined in 30 Hebrew-speaking kindergarten children exhibiting different levels of emergent literacy skills. Post-intervention, the intervention group showed a clear advantage over a control group on most measures, including vocabulary, morphology, phonological awareness and print concepts.
