STAJE Seminar for Teachers in Jewish Schools: Big Business and the Holocaust

December 14, 2014 from 12:30 P.M. to 5 P.M. 

The Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust invites Jewish school educators to participate in our upcoming seminar, Big Business and the Holocaust. The seminar is part of the Museum’s Shoah Teaching Alternatives in Jewish Education (STAJE) programs, and will take place at the Museum on Sunday, December 14, 2014 from 12:30 P.M. to 5:00 P.M. 

Germany had many collaborators as it carried out its war against Europe and its war against the Jews. Among these collaborators were large corporate interests. In this seminar, we will explore three aspects of the connection between large business and the Holocaust: the far reaching empire of the chemical conglomerate, IG Farben (which then included Bayer Aspirin); the role of the banking industry in financing and benefitting the Holocaust; and the extensive use of slave labor during World War II. 

Outstanding scholars Peter Hayes (Northwestern University), Harold James (Princeton University) and Wolf Gruner (The Shoah Foundation) will guide us through our investigation of this topic. 
We hope you will join us for what should be a fascinating seminar. 

The program is free of charge, but space is limited and pre-registration is required. 

To pre-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. 

The Museum is located at 36 Battery Place in Lower Manhattan and is a convenient walk from the 1, 4/5, and R trains. Parking is available within a few blocks of the Museum. For more detailed directions, please visit our website.

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.

Tefilla-Toons: New tefilla curriculum

I would like to introduce Tefilla-Toons, an exciting new tefilla curriculum. Tefilla-Toons is a series of cartoon animations that teach each of the birchas hashachar and basic foundations of emunah; such as how Hashem loves each and every one of us, our Torah learning is important to Hashem and many more. Included is a student workbook and teachers introduction video. The student workbook is written to help concretize the ideas presented in the videos and also provide fun activities to help keep the student engaged. While the videos and workbook are geared to 3-5 graders, middle and high school classes love them too.

The entire project is dedicated l’zecher nishmas my brother-in-law, Rabbi Yosef Kalter, Yosef ben Naftali Shimon HaKohen. May it be a zechos for his neshema and the entire family.

The entire curriculum can be found on chinuch.org at this link: http://www.chinuch.org/item_detail/Tefilla-Toons-Birchos-Hashachar-Videos-And-Workbook

Center for Modern Torah Leadership Rabbis and Educators Colloquium

You are invited to the 2014 Center for Modern Torah Leadership Rabbis and Educators Colloquium:
Pride without Prejudice: Philosophic and Pedagogic Approaches
December 7-8, 2014
Congregation Beth Sholom, 275 Camp St., Providence RI

Can there be pride without prejudice? Modern Orthodox klei kodesh strive to educate simultaneously toward particularistic identification with and love for the Jewish people and toward recognition of thetzelem Elokim in every human being. These goals are in tension with one another. Particularistic identification can lead to devaluation of the non-Jewish other; recognition of the universality of the tzelem can lead to delegitimization of ahavat Yisroel. 

We will develop, share, evaluate, and model pedagogic approaches to this issue through deep study of foundational Torah texts in full awareness and appreciation of disciplines such as anthropology, sociology, and philosophy. Each session will include a formal shiur, case study presentations, and extensive chavruta and moderated group discussion. Engaged participation is expected for all participants, as the colloquium will be made up of active conversations rather than lectures.

Confirmed presenters include: Rabbi Yaakov Bieler, Rabbi Aryeh Klapper, Rabbi David Maayan, Rabbi Eric Grossman, Dr. Shani Bechhofer, Rabbi Zev Eleff, Rabbi Dr. Eliezer Finkelman, and Miriam Gedwiser, Esq.

Specific topics include:

Religious Pluralism in the thought of Rabbi Jonathan Sacks
Teaching Ethically Difficult Texts
Biblical Attitudes towards Intermarriage
History of American Orthodox Rhetoric
Gender and Hierarchy....and more!

If you are able to attend or have any questions about the event, please reply to Brauna Doidge, bdoidge@torahleadership.org
Registration is extremely limited, so please let us know as soon as possible if you can attend. There is a registration fee of $36. Some travel subsidies are still available.

Jewish Education Innovation Challenge grants

The Mayberg Family Foundation announced today the third year of the Jewish Education Innovation Challenge (JEIC), a grant initiative designed to stimulate and reward innovation in Jewish middle and high school education in North America.

During the past two years JEIC has funded and researched four new models for Jewish education created by talented educators, enabling them to field test paradigm shifting programs in Jewish day schools. JEIC provides $50,000, along with research and consulting services to give grantees optimal chances for success and to glean lessons for other innovators to build upon. 

The grant program is structured in three phases, with the first step being the completion of a short Letter of Intent. Applicants invited to write a full proposal are given a $1000 grant upon turning it in. A larger grant is given to those who make it to the third and final round, and the full $50,000 grant will be given to up to six winners. The Challenge is open to any Jewish middle school or high school, regardless of denomination.

JEIC searches for programs that share our values, including: 
• Challenging students assumptions about Judaism in a respectful way
• Development of Hashem-centered students
• Helping to form Jewish identity
• Deep thinking about Judaic texts and ideas
• Connection of Judaism with emotional memory and sacred habits
• Programs that create a Jewish context for resilience and adaptability
• Programs that move student’s locus of control from outside to inside
• Programs that transforms students over the span of the year in a way that students and teachers recognize
• Ways to engage students that sustains the engagement over time
• Sufficient time on task (must meet at least four times a week for 45 minutes or more each time)
LOIs are due no later than Wednesday December 10, 2014 at 11:59 p.m.For detailed information about the JEIC and how to secure funding, visit www.jewishchallenge.org or write to rabbifeld@jewishchallenge.org.

The Jewish Education Innovation Challenge (JEIC) is a grantmaking initiative designed to disrupt complacency and encourage innovation in Jewish day school education. By rewarding and collaborating with talented innovators, JEIC seeks to improve the way Jewish values, literacy, practice and belief are transferred to the next generation. The project's ultimate success will be the creation and implementation of revolutionary, practical educational models that are sustainable, accountable and scalable.

The Mayberg Family Charitable Foundation is a grantmaking family foundation with a high impact, entrepreneurial approach to philanthropy. Trustees Louis and Manette Mayberg serve on a variety of boards and are deeply involved in many issues and initiatives impacting how future generations will sustain Jewish values, literacy, practice and belief. Giving priorities include Jewish outreach and Jewish education.

The challenge is designed to highlight and share the work of specific teachers (or small teams of up to 4) who have implemented successful innovations in their classrooms.

Atid is open for submissions from October 19th to November 30th, followed by a month of open online voting and judging by a panel of experts.

Ivriyon Summer Hebrew Institute Application Now Available

Dear Educators:

I am pleased to share that The Davidson Graduate School
at JTS will run its popular Ivriyon Hebrew immersion
program June 29 - July 23, 2015.

"My experience at the Ivriyon helped me push my Hebrew
skills to the next level. Learning from expert faculty,
as well as my fellow participants, in an environment
catered specifically to day school teachers was one of
the best professional development choices I could have
made. My confidence in my abilities has increased, my
vocabulary has expanded, and I am returning to my school
with a renewed focus on helping my students.“ — Ivriyon

Ivriyon provides day school teachers with a wonderful
opportunity to strengthen their ability to teach Judaic
topics in Hebrew language. The program is a 4-week, non-
denominational immersive experience hosted at JTS in New
York, and all expenses related to instruction, housing
(provided in NYC at JTS dormitories for out-of-town
participants), and meals are subsidized.

Ivriyon is supported by a grant from the AVI CHAI
Foundation and co-sponsored by the William Davidson
Graduate School of Jewish Education.

For full details and an application, please visit the
Ivriyon website www.jtsa.edu/ivriyon, or write to

Blended/online learning survey request

I am currently working on my MBA Capstone project that is, of course, tied to day school education since that is where my experience and heart is at this point in my career. I was hoping that some of you may be able to help direct me to some current data that I need to bolster my claim that most day schools are in need of financial support and possibly even some research that discusses what has been tried and failed or been successful for our schools. 

Additionally, I am also collecting data on the use of blended and/or online learning in our day schools - Are our schools using blended learning? Using online learning? What is it costing schools to offer an online course? Are they outsourcing it? etc. If anyone has access to such research/data, I would so appreciate you sharing it with me. If not, if you would be willing to answer the questions in this survey regarding the use of blended and/or online learning in your schools that would be greatly appreciated and I would obviously share the data I gather with you if you are interested.

My project isn't intended to solve the financial crisis that schools may find themselves in nor to suggest we should become fully online schools by any stretch, but I am hoping to make two different recommendations - one or both - that may help schools (particularly out of town schools) bring in some extra income to their schools. . . .and as we know every dollar and more importantly every student counts!

Thanks again,
Ariella Allen

After piloting the program during the 2013-2014 school year, we made it available to other schools for the 2014-5 school year.
