Can We Attract the Majority of American Jews to Day Schools?

Can We Attract the Majority of American Jews to Day Schools? | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
Jewish day schools also need to formulate their vision in a clear and concise manner, and market it together with the larger Jewish community. Many families who have not been exposed to Jewish day schools often view our learning communities as homogeneous, narrow, and parochial, when nothing could be farther from the truth. If our goal is to attract the majority of American Jews, we need to market Jewish day school and its value using the best methods and practices that have been successful in other industries.

Holocaust Education? There’s an App for That. | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

When you think about elementary education, do you think: “I find it a good idea to introduce horrific, incomprehensible subjects in an age-inappropriate manner that could haunt a child forever, and I find it best to do that via an impersonal, hand-held device that allows a child to have emotionally shattering experiences solo, without parental or pedagogical support, on the same tech-toy they use to play Talking Tom”? Yes? Well, then, as Yom HaShoah approaches, you will love these two Holocaust apps for children.

Moving Israel Education Beyond ‘Complexity’ to ‘Responsibility’

Moving Israel Education Beyond ‘Complexity’ to ‘Responsibility’ | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
Israel provides a uniquely Jewish space to examine how Judaism should respond to the public square, as Rabbi Prof. David Hartman argued in his seminal essay, “Auschwitz or Sinai”: “Moral seriousness and political maturity and wisdom must come to our nation if we are to be judged by the way we struggle to integrate the Sinai covenant with the complexities of political realities.”

 Teaching Jewish Holidays in Early Childhood Education in Israel.

Teaching Jewish holidays in secular kindergartens in Israel is a major part of the early childhood education curriculum and often revolves around myths of heroism. The telling of these stories frequently evokes strong nationalist feelings of identification with fighting as they describe survival wars and conflicts in which the heroes are mostly male fighters and Jewish victory over the enemy is celebrated. Thus the teaching of the holidays hidden agenda strengthens ceremonial, patriarchal and national ideas. This paper proposes a number of educational alternatives in accordance with critical feminist pedagogy and Jewish values of social justice. The article focuses on three major holidays: Hanukah, Purim and Passover. It shows in each one of them the conventional reading of the holiday which is the traditional way it is being taught in secular kindergartens, the holiday through a critical feminist pedagogy lens and application in early childhood classrooms.

The Art of Prayer – V’ani Teflilati – I Will Become My Prayer

The Art of Prayer – V’ani Teflilati – I Will Become My Prayer | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
“Prayer can be electric and alive. Prayer can touch the soul, burst forth a creative celebration of the spirit, and open deep wells of gratitude, longing and praise. Prayer can connect us to our Living Source and to each other, enfolding us in love and praise, wonder and gratitude, awe and thankfulness. Jewish prayer in its essence is soul dialogue and calls us into relationship within and beyond. Through the power of ancient and modern words and melodies, we venture into realms of deep emotion and find longing, sorrow, hope, wholeness, connection and peace.

Teens at a Seder with Their Parents Probably Enjoyed Themselves | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
Like nearly any other segment of the population, broad strokes fail to fully capture how teens think about, feel about, relate to, and engage in Jewish life. But, certain themes emerged after examining the entirety of the research. We believe highlighting some of these findings with you will be helpful. Some of the findings presented below are accompanied by quotes from teens. Of course there were many quotes we could choose to share; we tried to present varied perspectives here, and certainly invite you to read more about the research findings in the digital version of Generation Now.

Gleanings: Unleashing the Power of Congregational Education

Gleanings: Unleashing the Power of Congregational Education | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
Ever since the 1992 National Jewish Population Study, many of us—educators, clergy, philanthropists—have been engaged in heroic efforts to revitalize congregational education. While we have had made notable progress for which we should be rightly proud, this field has remained stubbornly resistant to deep transformation. This past October, The Davidson School of JTS brought together a group of scholars, rabbis, educators, and change practitioners from across denominations and North America to learn together and begin to design an innovative path forward. Out of this gathering came a renewed sense of hope, a desire for collaboration among diverse institutions, and a revitalized sense of transformative purpose.
