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.

“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.
