MOFET JTEC - Hebrew, the Living Breath of Jewish Existence: The Teaching and Learning of Biblical and Modern Hebrew

MOFET JTEC - Hebrew, the Living Breath of Jewish Existence: The Teaching and Learning of Biblical and Modern Hebrew | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

I contend that the physical separation between the Jewish Studies and the Hebrew departments in Jewish day schools does a disservice to both by shutting the door to crucial teaching and learning opportunities of Hebrew. I recommend that Jewish day schools should be working towards breaking down these ‘barriers’. In the present research, I address this issue from the perspective of my own interest, namely Hebrew pedagogy.

MOFET JTEC - New Report Offers Unprecedented Look at How Hebrew is Incorporated at Jewish Camp | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

A new report from the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Studies in Jewish Education at Brandeis University, funded in part by CASJE (Consortium for Applied Studies in Jewish Education), offers an unprecedented look at the many ways, to what degree, and the reasons why Hebrew is incorporated at Jewish overnight camps across North America. Connection, not Proficiency: Survey of Hebrew at North American Jewish Summer Camps surveys the experiences and opinions of camp directors at 103 camps. As the report shows, the overwhelming majority of these camps are deeply invested in using Hebrew to connect their campers to their camps’ traditions, to Israel and to Jewish peoplehood.

This article explores this assumption by focusing on the experiences of mothering of a group of Israeli emigrants in Britain.
