Your Passover relevance is killing my seder

Your Passover relevance is killing my seder | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
So, this year, I am planning to forgo the relevant additional readings, trash the inboxed Haggadot and get back to basics. I crave the old school seder and Haggadah. And I want to let them serve as the jumping off point for important conversations about relevant and contemporary issues that they, done properly, take us to.

Best wishes for a chag sameach, a wonderful and meaningful Passover.

Three Steps To Preserving Peoplehood: A Global Perspective

Three Steps To Preserving Peoplehood: A Global Perspective | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
It is remarkable to see how much connects us as a people despite our cultural differences and geographical distances. So many communal ventures. So many exciting innovations. And, at the same time, so many common challenges.

Reflecting on these encounters, and the desire our young leaders have for a vibrant Jewish future, we can advance peoplehood by championing diversity and creating ways to re-engage with those who wish to explore their Jewish identity and connect to their rich heritage.

20 Ideas for Professional Development in the Digital Age

20 Ideas for Professional Development in the Digital Age | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

What is professional development?  It is pretty much anything that helps one develop professionally. At the heart, professional development is about growth and learning.  In the field of education, it seems like many quickly think of educational opportunities that mimic what they see in their schools. As a result, they turn professional learning and education into schooling.  The problem with that is that schooling is too limiting.  In this age, there are many other exciting and high-impact learning opportunities for teachers that extend beyond traditional notions of schooling.  When we hear the phrase “professional development,” certain practices likely come to mind, things like in-services and conferences. In the digital age, there are countless other opportunities for professional development and restricting one’s thoughts to just a few options limits our insight into what is possible for our students.  With that in mind, here is a brainstorm of 20 options available to educators today. This is far from an exhaustive list, but it is enough to start exploring the possibilities.  Feel free to suggest others in a comment to this post.
