Scribes of The Cairo Geniza
The University of Pennsylvania Libraries, in partnership with the Princeton Geniza Project, the Library of the Jewish Theological Seminary, and the Genizah Research Unit at Cambridge University Library share Cairo Geniza fragments with the Zooniverse community for the first time! The purpose of phase I of Scribes of the Cairo Geniza is to sort Cairo Geniza fragments in order to prepare them for transcription in phase II (launching Spring 2018). In this phase, you will sort fragments into different categories based on their script types: whether they are written in Hebrew or Arabic scripts and formal or informal scripts, and whether they contain specific visual characteristics.

Developing and Transmitting Religious Identity: Curriculum and Pedagogy in Modern Orthodox Jewish Schools
This paper argues that American modern Orthodoxy is facing a crisis caused at least in part by problems of student identity formation. A range of ethnographic research conducted over the last decade suggests that modern Orthodox students feel increasingly disengaged from religious studies classes—and that this disconnection is a factor in the movement’s decline. I argue that student disengagement may be a result of these schools’ inability to accommodate students’ own epistemological commitments to religious pluralism and autonomy, as well as the mainly secular American concerns central to their developing personal identities.

An End for Education: Launching The Idea School
Now Rabbi Bitton and I are launching The Idea School, which will open in the 2018-19 school year in Bergen County, NJ. As a modern Orthodox, co-ed high school, our mission will be to provide students with the abilities to nurture a relationship with Hashem, live a rich halakhic life, and engage with the world in an ethically and morally responsible manner. It will also be to help students see learning as a joyful, lifelong process.

Project Based Learning: Reflections from the Summer Sandbox Conference
This week, I had the privilege of attending the 4th Annual Summer Sandbox, a 2.5 day conference focused on project-based learning (PBL) and education in the 21st century hosted at Yeshivat Noam in Paramus, NJ. As an educator well aware of the use, jargon, and general interest in PBL within the progressive educational community but without much insight into its underlying principles and methods, I've been meaning to attend this conference for a few years now.

Secrets of How Four Jewish Schools Are Revolutionizing Seattle Jewish Education
Everyone seems to “know” – on a theoretical level – that EdTech has a lot to offer classrooms of every level. But actually implementing elearning in the classroom is another story. This week JETS director Smadar Goldstein traveled to Seattle to work with four Jewish Day Schools on how to implement elearning in Judaic studies, Hebrew language, and other subject areas. Smadar’s visit to Seattle was sponsored by the Samis foundation. Samis organized the visit as part of their interest in providing professional development to Jewish Day School educators, and their desire to promote quality EdTech learning on a day-to-day basis in day school classrooms.

What If Students Could Learn Anything They Want in Tanakh? - Ma’ayanot’s PBL 80/20 Experiment
At the beginning of the school year I asked the students who are enrolled in my senior Maayanot Yeshiva High School for Girls Honors Tanakh class, to ponder the question “If you could learn anything in Tanakh, what would you choose?” I asked this question as the kick-off of our Google 80/20 project, a year-long, in-school independent research project which culminates in a real-world product and a public exhibition.

Technion Jewish Day School Challenge
For the first time ever, RAVSAK and Technion - Israel Institute of Technology invite day school students to participate in the Technion Jewish Day School Challenge by building Pesach themed Rube Goldberg machines. Inspired by the Rube Goldberg machine created by Technion students to depict the story of Pesach, the Challenge asks day school students to make the project their own. Teams of students from Jewish day schools are invited to enter the contest by submitting a video of a Rube Goldberg machine that completes the task of revealing a Seder plate. There will be two divisions of the competition: middle school (5th-8th grade) and high school (9th-12th grade).
