Monday, June 29 through Thursday, July 2, 2015 at Drisha Institute: a four-day workshop for high school and middle school Talmud teachers

Please join us for a workshop exploring key issues in teaching Talmud in day schools. Some of the topics we will address are--
Teaching skills: Helping students develop a robust ability to identify and make sense of the steps of a Talmudic argument, including using technology effectively to support skill development. 
Purpose and meaning: What is learning Talmud about? How do we understand and help students understand the purpose and meaning of Talmud study?
Talmudic discourse: How can we help students make sense of features of Talmudic discourse that they may find frustrating or alienating (such as uqimta’ot, revisions of tannaitic statements, forced derashot, etc.)?
Relating the forest and the trees: Uncovering and helping students access the big ideas of a sugya or chapter of Talmud.
On the daf and beyond the daf: What foci might advanced Talmud study have, in addition to learning Rishonim and other commentaries and poskim?
Learning to swim: Helping students learn to navigate the texts of torah shebe’al peh.
Teacher-led and small group/chavruta learning: Using a variety of groupings effectively to maximize student learning and ownership.
Participants will also be invited to bring into the workshop issues that are important to their own teaching practice and to share their own experiences and expertise.

Romania and the Holocaust, Museum of Jewish Heritage, NYC

March 1, 2015 from 12:30 P.M. to 5 P.M.

Romania was an ally of Germany and had its own fascist, anti-Semitic movement. While a large percentage of Jews from Bessarabia and Bukovina were murdered, most of the Jews in central Romania remained alive. Join us as we investigate how Romanian Jews suffered in the Holocaust, and also through great effort, how more than half of them survived. 

Outstanding scholars Radu Ioanid (United States Holocaust Memorial Museum) and Randolph Braham (CUNY Graduate Center) will guide us through our investigation of this fascinating topic. Rabbi Mayer Moskowitz will give testimony about his experiences in Romania during this tragic period.

We hope you will join us for what should be a fascinating seminar. 

The program is free of charge, however 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. 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 programs are made possible by generous funding from The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany - The Rabbi Israel Miller Fund for Shoah Research, Documentation and Education.

Great Jewish Books Teacher Workshop, Yiddish Book Center, Amherst, MA

I went to a Jewish day school through 12th grade, and I learned an enormous amount there. But it wasn’t until college that I was introduced to the riches of modern Jewish literature, from Sholem Aleichem and Dvora Baron to Cynthia Ozick and Etgar Keret—to the vast library of modern texts that are deeply rooted in an ancient literary tradition and that, more directly and brilliantly than anything else, addressed my questions about what it means to be a Jew in today’s world. 

I see the same powerful response to that literature in the students who come to the Yiddish Book Center for our Great Jewish Books Summer Program. Whether they bring deep backgrounds in Tanakh and Talmud, or have had little previous exposure to the classical Jewish texts, the students are inspired by this literature to think deeply and critically about who they are, where they come from, and what choices they face. Best of all, the books connect the students to one another and lead them to further reading and study. 

Unfortunately, modern Jewish literature still isn’t taught in many Jewish schools. That’s why this summer, the Yiddish Book Center will host our first Great Jewish Books Teacher Workshop -http://www.yiddishbookcenter.org/great-jewish-books/teacher-workshop. Designed for high school teachers in Jewish day schools—in a variety of disciplines, including English and language arts, social studies, and Jewish history—and in supplemental schools, the workshop will inspire and support teachers eager to introduce a wide variety of modern Jewish literary and cultural materials into their curricula.

With support from the Jim Joseph Foundation, the workshop will allow twenty high school teachers to work together, in person and virtually, for a full academic year. From July 26-31, they’ll spend six days at the Yiddish Book Center in Amherst, Massachusetts, studying major works of modern Jewish literature and popular culture. Working together and with faculty mentors, they’ll also develop materials and innovative approaches for teaching these materials. In the following academic year, the teachers will continue to receive support, including one-on-one mentorship, and to connect with each other through a virtual community. Teachers selected to participate will receive free tuition and stipends to make their participation possible. 

All the details can be found here: http://www.yiddishbookcenter.org/great-jewish-books/teacher-workshop/. As a friend and supporter of the Yiddish Book Center, I hope you can help us to the spread word of this remarkable opportunity to the teachers in your community. Forward this email, or tell them face-to-face about the new program. I would be delighted to hear from you with suggestions of teachers and school administrators to contact. 

Working together, we can connect more students with Jewish literary treasures that will inspire and transform the way they think about Jewishness and about themselves. 

Best,
Josh Lambert
Academic Director, Yiddish Book Center
Visiting Assistant Professor, English, UMass Amherst

Aleinu Leshabe’ach: A Tefilah Symposium, Machon Pardes, Jerusalem

The Pardes Center for Jewish Educators presents:

Summer Professional Development Opportunity for Administrators, Tefilah Coordinators and Facilitators

Aleinu Leshabe’ach: A Tefilah Symposium. Join colleagues, tefilah researchers and leaders in the field for an intensive five-day working forum on tefilah in Jewish day schools. 

Tefilah and tefilah education are at the core of the day school experience. And yet, tefilah is undoubtedly one of the most challenging aspects of the curriculum, and few teachers/administrators feel they have fully succeeded in this area. Thankfully, this can change. This symposium will be an opportunity to apply what we know about best practices to prayer education.

Goals:
• to inspire the participants to become better tefilah educators 
• to uncover a wide range of goals for tefilah education and explore ways to meet those goals
• to examine useful and current research
• to reflect on what is happening in the field
• to share our collective wisdom
• to return to your schools motivated and prepared to take tefilah the next step

Ten awardees will receive full grants for transportation, room + board and program participation. Apply by February 1, 2015. Awardees will be notified by February 15, 2015.

For more information, please contact: susan@pardes.org.il

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The 29th Annual Conference will be held from June 9-11, 2015, at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, in New York. Held in collaboration with the Association for the Social Scientific Study of Jewry, the Conference will offer a unique opportunity to to engage with educational phenomena in all their manifestations, settings, and contexts, and to place our engagements with Jewish education in broader scholarly and social contexts, in an effort to continue challenging and advancing our field.

The conference will bring together researchers, practitioners, and policy makers in research-based conversations that will address contemporary issues, pressing concerns, and new opportunities in Jewish education and the communities in which it takes place. We are looking forward to panels, workshops and conversations that address more traditional domains like curriculum, teaching and learning, schools, synagogues, and camps, in addition to research on broader questions of policy, financing, leadership, popular culture, museums, journalism, politics, and social media.

The Conference will be held mid-week, in order to allow for our second annual Emerging Scholar Seminar. Organized in conjunction with Consortium for Applied Studies in Jewish Education (CASJE) and the Mandel Center for Studies in Jewish Education, the Seminar will be held on June 8-9, and will provide an opportunity for mentoring, research, workshopping and discussion between senior and emerging scholars in the field.

The conference will be co-chaired by Dr. Ari Y. Kelman (Stanford), who will coordinate the program and Dr. Evie Rotstein (HUC-JIR), who will oversee the arrangements.

The deadline for submissions has been extended to January 31, 2015.
