Holland occupies a large role in the memory of the Holocaust. As the country that sheltered Anne Frank and other hidden Jews, it has been seen as being more righteous than other European countries.

Join us at the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust, as we explore the paradoxical history of Holland in the Holocaust with leading scholars Gerhard Weinberg (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill), Dienke Hondius (VU University, Amsterdam and the Anne Frank House), Jeffrey Shandler (Rutgers University) and survivor, Dr. Alfred Munzer. We look forward to what should be a fascinating seminar.

The program is free of charge, however space is limited and advance registration is required.

Hebrew classroom magazines from Israel for Jewish Day Schools

Teaching Diaspora day school students spoken Hebrew, and ensuring that they leave elementary school with a deep connection to the language as well as a level of mastery, has long been a challenge for educators in day schools outside of Israel. 

 

Current educational research often speaks to the need to make learning relevant to our students. In order to ensure that our children and students connect to the Hebrew language, and that they view its acquisition as intrinsically motivating, we must bridge the gaps that exist between instruction and motivation.

 

Ezbeoni Publishing, a beloved Israeli children's magazine publisher, has adapted their Israeli children's magazines to meet the needs of Diaspora students. The magazines are designed for students learning Hebrew outside of Israel, in day schools, supplemental schools, or other institutions and are designed to reach across denominations. The Diaspora Hebrew classroom magazines currently available are most suitable for kindergarten through the fifth grade.

New from Koren Publishers Jerusalem: The First Bilingual Mahzor for Israel’s National Holidays

Koren Publishers Jerusalem announces publication of the Koren Yom Ha’Atzmaut Mahzor, the first-ever English-Hebrew prayer book for Israel’s national holidays. Published in collaboration with the World Mizrachi organization, the Koren Yom Ha’Atzmaut Mahzor is a double-ended volume that features complete services for Israel’s Independence Day and Jerusalem Day with a collection of essays by leading scholars in the world of Religious Zionism. The mahzor also includes a moving introduction by Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, translation by Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, and new commentary by Rabbis Moshe Taragin and Rabbi Binyamin Lau that connects the centrality of Israel to the weekday liturgy. 

The order of prayers in the Koren Yom Ha’Atzmaut Mahzor is based on the practices established by the Chief Rabbinate of Israel. Optional prayers such as Hallel and Al-HaNissim appear in shaded text with extensive notes that explain the halakhic debates surrounding their recitation.

The unique collection of essays explore the theological, philosophical, and halakhic implications of the modern State of Israel. Contributors include: R. Yehuda Amital(zt”l), Dr. Erica Brown, R. Zvi Yehuda Kook(zt”l), R. Binyamin Lau, R. Mosheh Lichtenstein, R. David Milston, R. Yitzhak Nissim(zt”l), R. Shlomo Riskin, R. Jonathan Sacks, R. Herschel Schachter, R. JJ Schacter, R. Joseph B. Soloveitchik(zt”l), R. Moshe Taragin, R. Berel Wein, Dr. Yael Ziegler, and more.

“The Koren Yom Ha’Atzmaut Mahzor is both an enhanced mahzor and an inspiring educational resource in one. Now all English-speaking Jewry will be able to enrich their connection to Israel emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually,” says Koren publisher Matthew Miller. 

The Koren Yom Ha’Atmaut Mahzor is being released before Passover, the festival that celebrates redemption and the birth of the Jewish nation. “On Pesah and Shavuot, we celebrate our original, physical redemption and spiritual destiny in Biblical times. On Yom Ha’Atzmaut and Yom Yerushalayim, we celebrate these very same sentiments in modern times,” says Rav Doron Perez, Director-General of World Mizrachi. “We thank our donors for supporting this landmark publication.

Torah iTextbook Update

The Torah iTextbook Project’s library of 20 sugyot was officially unveiled at the 2015 National Jewish Day School conference just a few weeks ago. Many of the educators who visited our spot at the conference “playground” were extremely positive about the impact that this library could make on their gemara curriculum and some have already begun the process of subscribing to the library for the next school year. 

We have also updated our website which now includes a free downloadable sample sugyah (Shliach L’Dvar Aveirah), a downloadable brochure explaining the educational goals and objectives of the material and a page which includes information on how your school can subscribe to the project for the 2015-16 school year. 

In addition we have partnered with Gemara Berura and have begun the process of uploading our materials onto their online system. This partnership will allow us to provide our content to Gemara Berura schools as well as to non-Gemara Berura schools who do not have access to iPads or Apple computers. 

For more information please visit www.HDSTIP.org.

The Torah iTextbook Project is made possible by a grant from the Jewish Education Innovation Challenge, an initiative of the Mayberg Family Charitable Foundation.

A New Film That is Perfect for a Yom Hashoa Program in a School

This is a film unlike any other in Destiny’s Faith and Faith series, and unlike any other Holocaust film ever made. No graphic scenes will be shown and no overview of the period explaining this unique event will be described. Rather, this film will trace the unique and amazing story of one particular family, its trials, tribulations and difficulties it faced in order to survive, beginning long before the Holocaust with the Inquisition and continuing with the family until today. Then, this film will also show how from the ashes of the horror of the Holocaust, when the very fate and continuity of Judaism itself was in doubt, how many survivors themselves were the leaders who helped rebuild Judaism, contributing greatly not only to Judaism’s survival, but also to help Judaism thrive today in some ways as never before. The film ends by showing an overview of the Torah community today as it thrives.

Torah iTextbook Project Update

After two years of production and beta-testing the Torah iTextbook Project is proud to announce that our library of 20 iTextbooks is ready for release to schools. Each iTextbook covers a particular sugyah (topic) and includes a trigger film, the relevant pesukim, sections of gemara and related halachic rulings and responsa. The particular sugyot were chosen as those that are relevant to everyday life issues. The library includes iTextbooks on the issues of gun control (HaBah BeMachteret), taking personal responsibility (Shliach L’Davar Aveirah), taking another’s perspective (Eilu V’Eilu), Internal vs external beauty (Hiddur Mitzvah) and others. In addition to the presentation of the sugyah material the iTextbooks include interactive review and assessment exercises. Our Beta testing and related survey data has shown dramatic increases in student engagement. appreciation for gemara study and increased levels of skill building in reading and translating talmudic and halachic texts.

Rabbi Mordechai Smolarcik, Project Director of the Torah iTextbook Project will be presenting on the fundamentals of the iTextbooks and on the results of the project’s survey data at the 2015 North American Jewish Day School Conference on Tuesday, March 10th at 11:45 AM. In addition the iTextbooks can be sampled during the conference’s playground sessions on Sunday and Monday March 8-9.

The Torah iTextbook Project is made possible through a generous grant from the Mayberg Family Charitable Foundation, awarded through their Jewish Education Innovation Challenge.

Internet Resource: "Printing the Talmud: From Bomberg to Schottenstein"

To our colleagues who have been using the "Printing the Talmud" website (previously www.printingthtalmud.org): 
The website presents the online version of Yeshiva University Museum's groundbreaking exhibition and catalogue, Printing the Talmud: From Bomberg to Schottenstein.

This online resource -- which encompasses all of the information of the printed catalogue, including the scholarly essays on the history of the Talmud, and the catalogue entries and images of each item -- 
has moved.

The new address is: http://www.jewishhistory.com/PRINTINGTHETALMUD/

We encourage you to disseminate this information to other scholars and students who might be interested. 

Sharon Liberman Mintz and Gabriel Goldstein (Editors)

New website: www.practicalhalacha.com

Need to know a Halacha?
No rabbi is around to ask?
Check www.practicalhalacha.com for a quick answer to thousands of halachic questions.
Rabbi Moshe Heinemann has reviewed and approved every halacha.

Features:
• Single Opinion - Most halachot present only one opinion, so the user can quickly figure out what to do without scholarly analysis of many differing opinions.
• Intuitive - The Practical Halacha website is designed to be intuitive: you can find the halacha you seek by category, by keyword, or via the glossary. The halachot are searchable and organized. 
• Study Text - Practical Halacha can be used as a study text. Similar actions are grouped together to show similarities and differences between them. Subjects are taught by topic so that instead of memorizing thousands of halachot, a few dozen principles can cover many situations and many halachot.
• Introductions - For people unfamiliar with halacha, including non-observant Jews and even non-Jews, the introductions to each category can help give context and background to the actual halachot.
• Print - Practical Halacha can be printed in its entirety (see Read/Print as a Book on the upper right of the home page) or by section, or custom files may be assembled. Pull-out sections designed to be printed for easy use include the Siddur guide, Hagada, and Nida; the Shabbat and Holiday halachot can be printed for use on Shabbat and Chagim.
• Charts - Diagrams, charts, and photographs have been added to help clarify certain halachot. These may also be printed for quick reference. For example, the charts of milk and meat can be printed (and laminated) and kept in kitchens for quick reference.

These halachot are not intended to replace a rabbi who knows you personally or who knows the details of your specific question; rather the website is intended for when you have no access to a rabbi, such as right before Shabbat or Yom Tov, when travelling, or when the local rabbi does not have the expertise of a posek. Additionally, the website is useful as a convenient study text when no halachic books are available.

If any of you use this for teaching and you can suggest ways we can make it better as a teaching resource (or other content or functions which would be useful for teachers), please write to us.

Please take a look at the website. The URL is www.practicalhalacha.com
If you like it, please send the link to everyone you know who might be interested in it.

CFP: HaYidion

RAVSAK: The Jewish Community Day School Network is seeking proposals for the spring issue of HaYidion. The issue theme is "Excellence." we seek articles presenting a variety of perspectives on how to define excellence, what excellence looks and feels like, how to recognize excellence in different ways and functions of day schools. We seek a mix of articles starting with a general notion of excellence that draw upon examples, along with others that start from a particular example and seek to draw larger conclusions from it. Articles might broach the following areas (not exhaustive): models of day school excellence; probing the notion of excellence and its applicability, or not, to day schools; defining and evaluating excellence in Judaics, as broadly understood; tensions generated by the notion of excellence, such as academic excellence vs. other goals in Judaics, excellence vs. grading, excellence in relation to the panoply of goals in a school's mission/vision; families' perspectives on excellence; excellence as a component of a school's marketing and value proposition; excellence in relation to a particular aspect of a school's functions; drawing lessons about excellence from particular examples.

Article topics are open to an area of your interest and research; they must be relevant to Jewish day school education ages pre-K through high school. Articles are typically 1000-2000 words, written in non-academic style (no footnotes) and offering insight and suggestions to school leaders, lay and professional, and educators. Adaptation of material previously published in academic journals or elsewhere is acceptable. Articles promoting a particular product or organization will not be published. If interested, contact Elliott Rabin at erabin@ravsak.org. Submit a brief description of topic only, not a full article. Article deadline is March 31; proposals requested by February 23.

HaYidion: The RAVSAK Journal is published quarterly for distribution to RAVSAK member schools and on a subscription basis. (Previous issues can be accessed at www.ravsak.org/hayidion.) Each issue focuses on a theme of importance to practitioners of Jewish education. The journal publishes articles by a range of authors, including scholars, outside experts, and leading educators in the field of Jewish day schools. Articles provide guidance, information and inspiration to administrators, teachers and lay leaders in Jewish day schools worldwide.

Liturgy and Prayer Conference in New York City

The Mordecai M. Kaplan Center for Jewish Peoplehood and Mechon Hadar invite you to attend a conference on the future of liturgy and prayer (part 1 -- the words, not the music). The conference is designed to appeal both to scholars and other professionals and to interested laypeople. 

The conference will be held on Sunday, May 17, 2015, at Congregation Rodeph Sholom, 7 West 83rd Street (just west of Central Park). The day will consist largely of a series of panel discussions, with substantial time for audience interaction, as well as several text study and other break-out sessions in between and a keynote talk by Rabbi Dr. Ruth Langer. Among the topics will be poetry and liturgy, prayer as a prod to social justice work, liturgical creativity within halakhic boundaries, the impact of new digital media on liturgy, and theology and prayer -- and much more. A kosher box lunch will be provided. The presenting co-sponsors of the conference are the Kaplan Center and Mechon Hadar. Several congregations, of various denominations, will be co-sponsors as well. 

At the conference we will be engaging in a variety of trans-stream conversations with compilers of liturgy and other experts from the Reconstructionist, Reform, Conservative, Orthodox, Renewal and Humanistic streams, from both North America and Israel. Among the confirmed presenters are Rabbi Rolando Matalon, Rabbi Jill Jacobs, Rabbi Dr. Shai Held, Rabbi Dr. Ethan Tucker, Rabbi Dr. Ruth Langer, Ms. Catherine Madsen, Rabbi Ed Feld, Rabbi Jan Uhrbach, Rabbi Dr. Daniel Sperber, Rabbi Reena Spicehandler, Rabbi Dr. Peter Knobel, Rabbi Dr. Rachel Sabath Beit-Halachmi, Rabbi Michael Strassfeld, Dr. Marcia Falk and Dr. Alicia Ostriker. 

The conference is free of charge and open to the public. However, advance registration is important and will soon be available online.

For more information about the conference, please contact Dan Cedarbaum at dan@kaplancenter.org or at 847-492-5200.

Unfortunately, in large part because of Columbia University's graduation exercises, hotel rooms on the Upper West Side during this period are scarce. If you are coming in from outside New York, we urge you to make your travel and lodging plans as soon as possible. If our presenters do not take all of the rooms in our block at a nearby hotel, we will make them available to others. We may also be able to arrange for home hospitality, but on a very limited basis. Again, please contact Dan Cedarbaum for more information about accommodations. 

We will soon be preparing flyers for the conference, as well as a web page for registration that will contain more information, particularly about the panels. Please publicize the conference as broadly as you can.

We hope to see many of you in Manhattan in May.

The Atid Day School Innovation Challenge Hackathon

The Atid Day School Innovation Challenge, a joint initiative of PresenTense Group and The Jewish Education Project with the support of UJA-Federation of New York, is hosting a Hackathon to highlight and encourage innovation in Jewish day schools. The Hackathon, which will be held at Impact Hub on Monday, May 18th, will convene day school educators, technology experts and high school students for a day of prototyping and testing innovative solutions to educational challenges using the principles of Design Thinking.

The day-long event will focus on a core question: How might we use technology to enhance Jewish day school education? Participants will pitch ideas and form diverse teams around shared interests. With guidance from an experienced Hackathon facilitator and support from staff and mentors, the teams will spend the day building, testing and adjusting their solutions. The Hackathon will close with prototype demonstrations by representatives from each team. The top three teams, selected by a participant vote, will receive a cash prize that empowers them to continue building their prototypes. The event will also honor the recipients of the Atid Award, a group of extraordinary teachers whose innovative classroom ideas won a video contest last fall.

“Hackathons combine two powerful elements: a fast-paced, high-energy environment, and open, knowledgeable participants who are willing to take the risk to create fast, cheap prototypes that envision a different reality,” says Naomi Korb Weiss, CEO of PresenTense. “Dedicating a day to thinking differently about Jewish day school education introduces the opportunity to create lasting impact on the future of our community.”

Registration for the Hackathon is now open and seeking participants from diverse fields. Day school educators will find technical expertise, resources, and the time to develop a bright idea. Developers, designers, and other tech professionals will have the unique opportunity to use their skills in the service of Jewish education. Student volunteers will serve as thought partners and test users, enabling teams to iterate on their prototypes to create student-centered solutions. Computer science graduate students will build their portfolios through meaningful, live practice.

The Summer Beit Midrash offers: an amazingly intense learning environment, with a beit midrash filled from Shacharit to midnight; a very high level of learning along with high expectations and clear accountability; and the opportunity and obligation to teach community shiurim and to write a publishable teshuvah on the summer's topic.

"The Revival of the Menorah" - Jewish Identification Educational Initiative

The Harizi Foundation (NGO association) has produced: "Revival of the Menorah – In the Footsteps of a Menorah". It is now available to schools in Israel and the Diaspora. 

The program, "The Revival of the Menorah" is being implemented in many Israeli schools, secular, religious and ultra-orthodox, with 4,000 students participating last year. This year, 30,000 students are participating.

Our website http://www.edu-menora.com includes lesson plans (translated into English), photos, videos, and other learning aids. The site is regularly updated with educational materials provided by schools that are participating in the program.

The principal concept is to study:

1. The artwork, "The Menorah and Jerusalem - From its Destruction through Historical Events to its Revival" (see appendix).
It is a Jewish/Zionist visual and educational learning aid, based on the words of the Hebrew prophets. It is both simple to understand and to implement. The central idea is a presentation of the Menorah being taken into captivity in Rome (as depicted in the Arch of Titus) and the chain of historical events that follow: including the Holocaust, and the rebuilding of present-day Jerusalem following the establishment of Israel and the reunification of Jerusalem in the Six Day War.

2. The Menorah, a symbol of humiliation and destruction, becoming a symbol of an independent Jewish state in Israel after 2,000 years of exile and was internationally recognized as a symbol of Jewish renewal in Israel and the Diaspora. 

3. The artwork is divided into 3 parts: 
a. The base - the Menorah and Jerusalem during its destruction. 
b. The middle - the chain of events that preceded the establishment of the State.
c. The top - the Menorah with its branches representing present-day Jerusalem: well-established, flourishing, a symbol of self-governance, the realization of the dream of previous generations and more.

The goals of the program is to:
a. Instill and impart knowledge of Judaism, Zionism and Jewish History using active visual learning, both at home and in the classroom, and with the aid of games.
b. Become familiar with historical events of the Jewish people.
c. Make connections between Judaism before the destruction of the Temple and contemporary Jewry.
d. Strengthen the relationship between the Diaspora Jews to Jerusalem, as the national and religious capital of the Jewish people.
e. Learn about the different roles of democratic government institutions and civil rights in Israel.
f. Emphasize different eras of Jewish history: Jewish rule over Israel, the exile and return of the Jewish people.
g. Absorb 2,000 years of history, in one colorful, historically accurate and demonstrative image.

Additionally, family members can create and publicize new topics. There will also be a quiz with prizes and the opportunity to meet unique individuals associated with Jerusalem.

Implementation:
a. One initial session in which the teachers receive training on the various images in the art work. Or by using the website http://www.edu-menora.com. Or by Skype.
b. Schools will receive a large copy of the artwork (75 by 100 cm) to be displayed in the entrance or a central position of the school.
c. Students will receive their own colorful copy (20 by 30 cm).
d. Students will receive a game that includes dozens of color photographs of Jewish concepts.
e. There is an additional game for group work like Monopoly.

This project is based on an existing curriculum that is currently used in many schools.

The project is distributed by The Harizi Foundation, which is funded by private institutional donors who care about Judaism, the future redemption and building of the land of Israel and who consider the accessibility of these subjects to the younger generation as a national and personal mission. The close shipment is paid by the Goldshmidt Family Fund from New York. Some of the donors prefer to remain anonymous.

The materials are available free of charge for 50 schools in the Diaspora.
The program is a year-round program. 
We hope that you join this initiative.

Mummies and Masterpieces' "Healing Paris" fundraiser

Mummies and Masterpieces is extremely proud to share the following information regarding the recent launch of our national "Healing Paris" fundraiser. Through the sale of beautiful, hand-made greeting cards, we are raising funds in order to create, send and implement art therapy kits with the Jewish community of Paris. 

The art therapy kits were developed for children by educators, artists, therapists, psychiatrists and psychologists. They include bubble activities to teach controlled breathing and relaxation, animal puppets for facilitating discussions about feeling strong and how to construct our own feelings of safety, and art supplies for enabling creative expression through art. 

The news might have fallen to the back pages of the newspapers, but the trauma lingers for years thereafter.

With Yom Hashoah coming up, why not take on this fundraiser in order to help Jewish children recover emotionally from the trauma of the Hyper Cacher and Charlie Hebdo terrorist attacks? 

Healing Paris is available to US non-profit organizations, including synagogues, Jewish day schools, Jewish organizations, Hebrew schools, etc. 

The art therapy kits are created by Israeli staff for an organization called Artists4Israel, so this fundraiser also supports Israeli therapists and educators. This is a perfect way to engage students and families in a Chesed activity that is connected with Yom Hashoah and also supports Israel. 

Fundraiser website: www.healingparis.com

Fundraiser Facebook page: www.facebook.com/healingparisfundraiser

Please feel free to contact me with any questions. 

Wishing everyone a Chag Kasher Vesamayach,
