The Yeshiva Day School System — Costs and Considerations

The Yeshiva Day School System — Costs and Considerations | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

there are more Jewish religious studies students in America today than at any time in its history. And yet, this achievement has come at a cost, and that cost continues to be extraordinary and multifaceted. The most obvious cost is financial: it costs an extraordinary amount of money to send a child to yeshiva day school and for our community to sustain such independent schools. But there are also other, associated costs which may be less obvious than the monetary costs, but which are no less profound.

“Peoplehood” and the Millennials: Reciprocity of Recognition, Responsibility and Contribution

“Peoplehood” and the Millennials: Reciprocity of Recognition, Responsibility and Contribution | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
One chief challenge facing any introduction of the term “Jewish Peoplehood” is the profound ignorance that still exists within both Israeli and world Jewry regarding the richness, vitality, diversity and the splendid contribution each community potentially has to offer the other(s). As an Israeli educator who has been professionally immersed and educated in multiple settings worldwide, I can attest firsthand to the great advantages in thoughtfully standardizing infrastructures that may allow each community better exposure to, and influence on the others. While there are surely multiple venues to explore this paradigm, I’d like to offer as a tangible example the longstanding institution of shlichut (emissary).

Teaching Self-Reflection and Inclusion, Israeli Style, for Summer Camp Shlichim.

Teaching Self-Reflection and Inclusion, Israeli Style, for Summer Camp Shlichim. | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
This year, thanks to FJC’s vision and JAFI’s response to the changing face of inclusion at North American camps, Shutaf took part in shlichim training at Kibbutz Shefayim. We focused on opening a conversation about the issues – inclusion and acceptance – nuanced through activities with open discussions about what’s appropriate and what’s not as a camp staffer and role model. We served as ‘stage setters’ for the further training they will receive at their respective camps when they arrive in North America.

Healthy Education: A Proposal

Healthy Education:  A Proposal | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

Unfortunately, a lot of the methods these educators employ and the kinds of things that they say are often not strikingly different from many other things students experience and hear from good, well-meaning people. They are different in measure and severity, but not necessarily in kind. In my experience, the educational methods of the abuser (though of course not the physical abuse) lie at one extreme end of a broad continuum that is otherwise tolerated. And because of that, the ability to differentiate becomes much tougher.

Another scandal: Let’s not miss the point this time around

Another scandal: Let’s not miss the point this time around | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

Another scandal. Another rabbi/educator accused of all kinds of outrageous, inappropriate behavior with female students. This time it is severe enough that rabbis who live across the world, in Israel, New York and Los Angeles, and who span the Modern Orthodox-Chareidi-Chasiddishe spectrum, have come together to sign a letter warning the public to stay away. This time the person involved is thought to have performed hundreds (!) of indecent acts and to have ruined countless lives.

And yet with all the talking, I feel that the real issue is not being spoken about at all. And therefore, despite my deep reluctance to write publicly about any person or place, I want to tell another part of this story.

Religion, Power—and Jonathan Sacks

Religion, Power—and Jonathan Sacks | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

While praising Jonathan Sacks’s “brilliant” and “eloquent” Not in God’s Name: Confronting Religious Violence, Shlomo Riskin nevertheless faults the author for arguing that “Abrahamic monotheism should be understood . . . as a profound social and theological critique of the politicization of religion.” Such a view, writes Riskin, goes too far, ignoring an important element of the biblical message and threatening to undercut the religious case for Zionism:

How to Recover Data from Not Formatted Hard Drive

How to Recover Data from Not Formatted Hard Drive | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
If your external hard drive keeps asking you to format it after you have tried all kinds of solutions, you can download free MiniTool Power Data Recovery which is an excellent program that brings file recovery to Windows to have a try. Follow these steps to carry out data recovery process from not formatted external hard drive:  

Step 1. Launch MiniTool Power Data Recovery, and then select "Damaged Partition Recovery". You can see this module is specially designed for recovering data from damaged, RAW, or formatted partition when moving mouse over it. So it is most suitable for not formatted hard drive data recovery. 

Step 2. Then select the external hard drive to have a full scan (We take a 16 GB Kinston flash drive for example here). The scanning time depends on the capacity of your data in it. 

Step 3. When the scanning is finished, Power Data Recovery will show you the files it has found in the hard drive in tree structure. Tick the files and click "Preview" to check whether the files are the right ones. Note: you can press "Filter" button to choose specific file types to be shown in the middle pane. 

Step 4. In this step you are expected to click "Save" and then choose a safe location (usually it is another hard drive) to store all data you have selected. After that, wait for the success.
