STAJE Seminar: German Resistance to the Nazis

Sunday, May 15, 2016, 12:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Among the people who posed a threat to the Nazi regime were the courageous Germans who stood up against their government. German resistance to the Nazis came from across the spectrum of German society - clergy, politicians, aristocracy, the armed services and even the non-Jewish wives of Jewish husbands who were to be deported.

Join scholars Gerhard Weinberg (University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill), Peter Hoffmann (McGill University) and Waitman Boern (Holocaust Museum of Virginia) as we explore the history of German opposition to the Nazis and take a closer look at two fascinating examples: the defiance of German conservative politician and economist, Carl Friedrich Goerdeler, and resistance by soldiers in the Wehrmacht (German army).

A light lunch for teachers will be available at 11:45 A.M. (dietary laws observed).
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.

The Museum is located at 36 Battery Place in Lower Manhattan and is a convenient walk from the 1, 4/5, and R trains. Public transportation or parking for teachers will be reimbursed up to $20 per person or vehicle upon presentation of original receipt..

STAJE Seminars are generously supported by The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany. Through recovering the assets of the victims of the Holocaust, the Claims Conference enables organizations around the world to provide education about the Shoah and to preserve the memory of those who perished.

The educators' program requires a separate registration from the regular conference; attendees at the educators' sessions receive breakfast and lunch and, for an extra fee, they can attend the keynote lecture.

This year's conference will also feature a Jewish Film Festival created by Jewish film scholar and teacher of cinema Eric Goldman. Other highlights of the Seattle conference include the opening night keynote address by Dr. Devin Naar, chair of the University of Washington Sephardic Studies Program, and the banquet address by "legal genealogist" Judy Russell, a Certified Genealogist and Certified Genealogical Lecturer. As at previous conferences, remote streaming of selected programs will be available through LIVE!

The early registration period for the regular conference, which runs untilApril 30, offers the lowest fees, with savings of $55 for the full conference. Hotel rooms are going very quickly. To get a room at the conference rate, you must first register for the conference.

For a conference preview and a preview of what you can expect in Seattle, check out the webinar given by co-chair Chuck Weinstein to IGRA (the Israel Genealogy Research Association) earlier in March - go to http://www.iajgs2016.org and click on the webinar - don't forget to check out all the other great information on the website!

The Principals’ Center at the Harvard Graduate School of Education

This summer, The AVI CHAI Foundation is excited to once again sponsor day school leaders to attend one of two institutes at The Principals’ Center at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. New candidates, as well as those who have previously attended a summer institute prior to 2014 (with or without AVI CHAI sponsorship), are welcome to apply.

The AVI CHAI Foundation believes that effective Jewish day schools require committed and competent leaders who both work to improve their students’ learning and Jewish experiences, and prioritize their own professional growth. We have therefore developed a year-long program, structured around the Harvard Summer Institutes, to help day school leaders achieve these goals.

For further information and to apply, please use the following link: http://p0.vresp.com/2QgDLo

Kriyat HaTorah Technique – Online, Interactive Course from WebYeshiva.org

The following course may be appropriate for advanced high school students who are regular Torah readers in school or shul minyanim, or students who serve as gabbaim – please bring it to the attention of anyone who may benefit.

Kriyat HaTorah Technique – Online, Interactive Course fromWebYeshiva.org

Learn the essential halachot of Torah reading while improving your technique and skills. A refresher course of the finer points of correct pronunciation and cantillation, as well as associated halachot for the Ba’al Kore. The Pesukim of the Torah are infused with meaning by virtue of their words of course, but by virtue of the vocalization and cantillations (Ta’amei Ha’Mikra) of those words no less. How we read the words that are written dramatically affects their meaning as words and sentences. The goal of the course is to provide the regular Ba’al Kore with the tools to help improve on his Torah reading skills, by elucidating the three following areas:
(1) Review the rules and interaction of the cantillations (Ta’amei HaMikra).
(2) Review the rules of proper grammatical pronunciation in the biblical text.
(3) Review the basic halachot governing and guiding the Ba’al Kore with regards to his reading; his obligations, conduct, how to handle various situations with regards to the reading.
Participants will receive one-on-one feedback from a master Ba’al Kore to improve precision and technique.

4-part series with Mr. Corey Beinhaker, beginning Sunday, May 29th at 11am (EDT) – participate via the live interactive video conference, or through the archived shiurim.

Details and registration at:

The Jewish Education Geographic Information Project (Jedgip)


http://arcg.is/1OX9eTh

Dr. Isaac Hollander, Project Director
dr.h[at]isaachollander.com

MARCH 2016

Project Objective:
To cultivate and facilitate spatial thinking in Jewish education through a comprehensive Jewish Education Geographic Information System (GIS).

Rationale:
The learning experiences of Jewish Day School students are often fragmented and disconnected. The goal of JEDGIP is to help students and the stakeholders involved in their education conceptualize and visualize their learning in its breadth and depth by enhancing the understanding, accessibility, searchability, shareability, teachability, and meaning of Jewish Studies educational materials.

Method:
The National Research Council places spatial thinking at the forefront of the 21st-century educational agenda, and considers Geographic Information Systems (GIS) spatial technology a central tool to that end. This call should resonate loudly for Jewish Studies educators because the Jewish experience is inherently embedded in time and place.

The power of GIS lies in its ability to capture, integrate, edit, analyze, share and display data by relating units of information through the visual index of location. It provides opportunities to visualize and track a student’s knowledge across disciplines, subjects and time. It can meaningfully enhance students’ “diachronic” links with Jewish tradition and past as well as “synchronic” links with the contemporary world, the Jewish world, and Israel.

Concept Outline:
The purpose of this page is to provide an access point to the strongly visual Concept Outline. Please continue by following this link: http://arcg.is/1OX9eTh.

This is a highly collaborative project. Let us refine the idea and make it happen!
