MOFET JTEC - Inclusion in Jewish Education is about Choice

MOFET JTEC - Inclusion in Jewish Education is about Choice | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

Each February, we mark Jewish Disability Awareness Month. This year, the decision was made to add “inclusion” to the equation, and it is now called Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month (JDAIM). This addition may seem insignificant, but actually marks a movement toward action. Building awareness around an issue means that people come together to learn about and discuss it. It doesn’t imply next steps for taking action. “Inclusion” is a much bolder statement, calling on Jewish organizations to take action and include people with disabilities.

MOFET JTEC - Social by Design in All We Do

MOFET JTEC - Social by Design in All We Do | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

The result of all this work was a renaissance of pluralistic Jewish life on campus. An independent minyan blossomed. A chavurah learning series grew exponentially. While for years our student leadership had come largely from day schools – where Jewish social networks are much richer – our Hillel leaders and interns were now mostly JLF alumni.

Last year, we brought the Jewish Learning Fellowship to 10 other schools and found similar results replicated on their campuses. We are blessed to have a waiting list of another 15+ campuses who would like to begin JLF when the resources are available.

MOFET JTEC - Measurement Drives Excellence at Hillel

MOFET JTEC - Measurement Drives Excellence at Hillel | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

While researchers will continue to study Jewish college students and produce valuable reports about trends or the efficacy of particular programs, none of these studies can replace the value of each Hillel having its own performance data. With it, Hillels will know where they are truly succeeding and where they can still improve. And with a robust data-oriented approach to pursing our mission, the broader community can rest assured that their investment in the Jewish future is well placed with Hillel.

However jarring it might seem from the outside to witness the transition from the Solomon Schechter Day School Association to the Schechter Day School Network to NewOrg over the course of just three years, the truth is that the story of Schechter and many of its schools is the story of NewOrg and that is why I am confident and enthusiastic that NewOrg is a game changer for Schechter and for the field.

MOFET JTEC - Klal Perspectives Fall, 2015: Technology and the 21st Century Orthodox Community | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
This issue of Klal Perspectives explores whether a community, or even a family, can eliminate the intrusion of the Internet, and if not, how we can best meet its challenges and take advantage of its opportunities. And perhaps of particular interest is the identification of various influences of online use on the Orthodox community that are enormously consequential, yet frequently overlooked (such as online bullying, for example).
