Prayer and Adolescence: Can Formal Instruction Make a Difference?

Prayer and Adolescence: Can Formal Instruction Make a Difference? | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
This design experiment in prayer education for Jewish students was motivated by a current educational concern: educating for spirituality and religious practice. Educators are tasked with formally nurturing spirituality (Wright 2001). It is known that attitude to religious observance may change during adolescence (Hyde 1963), thus attitude to prayer needs attention. The effects/consequences of prayer understanding reach beyond religious practice itself, to encompass issues of faith, identity, spiritual development and well-being (Sigel 2009). Here quantitative and qualitative analysis is used to measure the effects of a tefillah (prayer and its understanding) course on student attitudes to prayer.

To Bring The Torah to the People, We Can’t Forget the Torah!

To Bring The Torah to the People, We Can’t Forget the Torah! | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
That’s why we created the Ezra Fellowship at Hillel International. Named for the biblical scribe who bought the Torah to the people, in the market place, Hillel’s Ezra Fellows similarly seek to engage students in the complexities of our tradition. 15 fellows are selectively recruited every year for their ability to demonstrate Jewish fluency – not just Jewish literacy, but an ability to add their own idioms and accents to foundational Jewish vocabulary. More than that though, they must also be engaging, outgoing, vivacious and approachable. They must possess a healthy balance of engagement and education. One without the other would not allow them to do this work.
