Lookstein Center Seminar in NYC - Academic Bible Study and the Orthodox Student

A four-day seminar (June 19-22, 2017)

High school Jewish studies teachers and Jewish campus professionals often face questions such as:
• My literature professor says that the Torah was written by many authors. Is that true?
• Why is there no archaeological evidence for the Exodus?
• Hammurabi’s code pre-dates the giving of the Torah and is very similar. Did Moshe copy from Hammurabi?
• Do I have to believe that everything in the Torah is historically accurate?

These, and others questions emerging from the exposure to academic Bible study, often pose deep religious challenges for the intelligent, thinking Orthodox student.

The Lookstein Center is pleased to announce a four-day intensive seminar designed to equip Jewish educators with knowledge, research, and resources to address the topic of academic Bible study. Participants will be rewarded with a rich program of text study, shiurim, and workshops designed specifically for Jewish educators. This fully funded program will be held at the Ramaz school in NYC, immediately prior to the popular YCT Yemei Iyun in Tanach and Jewish Thought. The program is led by Rabbi Dr. Joshua Berman (Academic Director) and Rabbi Dr. Zvi Grumet (Educational Director).

Participation will be limited to 20 educators.

Applications for the program are available at: www.lookstein.org/leadership/bibleseminar1.docx.

Application deadline: Jan 15, 2017.

For questions please contact biblearn@lookstein.org

Rabbi Dr. Joshua Berman is a professor of Tanakh at Bar-Ilan University and the author of two books on the Torah by Oxford University Press. He learned in Yeshivat Har-Etzion and has semikhah from the Israeli Chief Rabbinate.

Rabbi Dr. Zvi Grumet is a senior staff member at The Lookstein Center and a Tanakh teacher. He has semikhah from Yeshiva University and is the author of two books on the Torah.

Join scholar Jeff Shandler (Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ) and MJH Founding Curator Yitzchak Mais (Jerusalem, Israel) to learn how to help our students develop a critical approach to understanding primary sources associated with the Holocaust. We will examine how pre-war photography has created our image of Jewish life before the Holocaust. We will learn how to identify and contextualize perpetrator photography. Teachers will also analyze images in the Museum’s Core Exhibition with an eye to using this material in their classrooms. We will conclude by exploring how Holocaust photography is being used in contemporary projects.

The program is open to current classroom teachers and is free of charge. Space is limited and advance registration is required. To register or for more information, please contact Dr. Paul Radensky at pradensky@mjhnyc.org

A light lunch for teachers will be available at 11:45 A.M. (dietary laws observed). Public transportation or parking for teachers will be reimbursed up to $20 per person or vehicle upon presentation of original receipt.

STAJE Seminar: Historiographic Problems of the Holocaust

Sunday, October 30, 2016, 12:30 P.M. to 5:00 P.M.

What we teach about the Holocaust and how we do so are the result of choices we have made when we approach its history. What aspects of the Holocaust will we focus on? What sources will we use as we teach? How will we critically evaluate our sources? To what extent will outside concerns affect our presentation of the Holocaust? Join scholars Samuel Kassow (Trinity College, Hartford, CT), Natalia Aleksiun (Touro College, New York) and MJH Founding Curator Yitzchak Mais (Jerusalem, Israel) as we survey the major controversies in the history of the Holocaust and focus in on two case studies: Roosevelt and the Holocaust and the uses of survivor testimony. The seminar will include a workshop on how historiographic choices affect how we teach the history of the Holocaust to our students. 

The program open current classroom teachers and is free of charge. Space is limited and advance registration is required. To register or for more information, please contact Dr. Paul Radensky at pradensky@mjhnyc.org or call 646.437.4310

Announcing "The Parsha Discussion"

I am excited to launch "The Parsha Discussion," a new project that I am inaugurating for 5777. It is a weekly post that is designed to stimulate a discussion around the Shabbat table, especially with teenagers, based around the parsha.

See the posts and sign up at http://www.alexisrael.org/parshadiscussion 

Let me explain how this project was born.

A past-student contacted me and asked me to learn with him when he was visiting Israel. He wanted to study Parshat Hashavua with me. I was surprised. Why come half way around the world to study parsha; there is so much already on the internet!

He explained: "I love to discuss the parsha at the Shabbat Table. When my kids were young, we did a parsha quiz. Y'know - How many animals entered the Ark? How many sons did Noah have? For how many days did it rain? But now, my kids are 8 and 12; they don't want these informational questions. They find them childish. And I don't know how to raise discussions which are informed and relevant to them."

I find that many of my friends, who have learned in yeshiva, sometimes don't have the time, or even lack the confidence to engage the young-adults and other adults around their tables in significant Torah discussions.

I will share a post every Thursday in preparation for Shabbat which will be short, text-based, and will include questions for discussion. Join me on this exciting venture!

Bivracha,
Alex Israel

i-vrit Online Learning

 i-vrit is a new interactive learning program for advanced Hebrew students   5th-9th grade. Students read  books in Hebrew, listen and read the news, study Israeli poetry, literature and culture. This course improves reading, writing, and oral skills in Hebrew as well as learning grammar at a high level.
“The i-vrit Book Club” is another learning opportunity offered through i-vrit where students meet, read together modern Israeli books, acquire new vocabulary and learn more about Israel’s history and culture.

The online program has been running successfully for the past three years at SAR Academy, Riverdale, NY and this year, two more schools in NY have joined in. Both programs can be adjusted to the students’ and schools’ needs.

Portraits of Jewish Learning project (PJL), Mandel Center, Brandeis University


Applications due October 1, 2016

What does learning look like in Jewish education?

This fall, the Portraits of Jewish Learning project (PJL) will commission 6-8 papers from educators in various settings that (1) describe how learning occurs in Jewish education and (2) help to deepen the discussion of what we mean by Jewish learning. A modest honorarium will be awarded to authors of commissioned papers.

Who might be interested: We invite researchers, and practitioners interested in research, who want to develop a narrative about Jewish learning. Applicants should plan to be (or recently have been) systematically documenting the experience of learners (of any background, from preschoolers to adults) in any Jewish educational context (e.g., school, afterschool, camp, retreat, experiential, family education, adult learning, online, etc.).

Theoretical orientation: Rather than testing a particular learning theory per se, applicants should be interested in describing learning in their settings and reflecting about conceptual frameworks that might be suggested by the data.

Audience: Participants will translate their scholarship into materials suitable for a “non-academic” audience—to make their research and reflections accessible to practitioners, policy makers, lay leaders, parents, and the learners themselves. 

Joining the Team: Authors of commissioned papers will participate in periodic conference calls to work collaboratively with other PJL team members, to give and receive feedback, and to benefit from collegial discourse about issues of common interest.

Timeline: Draft papers (25-30 pages) will be due no later than June 1, 2017. Project staff will review submissions for possible editing and publication.

Application process: The PJL Application is due October 1, 2016. We will contact selected applicants for more information by mid-October and will select project participants by November 1, 2016.

Project leader: Diane Tickton Schuster
