STAJE Seminar: The Dilemma of Jewish Cooperation with the Nazis, Museum of Jewish Heritage

Sunday, February 21, 2016 from 12:30 P.M. to 5:00 P.M.

One of the more troubling dilemmas we confront as educators is how to understand Jews whose work with the Nazis resulted in further persecution of their fellow Jews. As we consider the moral challenges Jews faced during the Holocaust, we wonder whether or at what point Jewish cooperation with the Nazis moved from self-preservation to something more sinister?

Join Yitzchak Mais (Museum of Jewish Heritage), Samuel Kassow (Trinity College), Gabriel Finder (University of Virginia), and Neal Sher (former director, Office of Special Investigations) for a fascinating seminar that will explore Jewish cooperation with the Nazis including the Jewish police in the ghettos, the post-war “Courts of Honor” that tried Jews suspected of being complicit with the Nazis, and finally the United States prosecution of a Jewish kapo (forced labor supervisor).

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 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 seminar is fully covered by Yad Vashem and includes the seminar, a hotel, meals and tours in Jerusalem. The only expense of the teachers is the airfare and the transportation from the airport.

Destiny's Call: Book Three – Leviticus

Dear Educators and other people responsible for the education of the next generation,

A couple of years ago we introduced biblical fiction books to schools and classrooms around the country. The books were the full length novel Joshua: Conqueror, and the short story collections Destiny’s Call: Book One – Genesis and Destiny’s Call: Book Two - Exodus.

I am now in the process of finishing Destiny’s Call: Book Three – Leviticus and am reaching out to the wider community to help crowdfund this book and make it a reality.

This was probably one of the more challenging books to write, given that the Book of Leviticus (Vayikra) has little narrative. I did fictionalize some of the few but powerful stories in Leviticus. But how does one tell a story about animal sacrifice? How does one turn dry laws regarding childbirth, ritual contamination, usury and more into an interesting story?

And the ultimate question as a writer is do these stories hit the mark? Will they succeed in connecting a generation that is unfamiliar with our foundational texts with their heritage?

Find out and help me bring it to the world.

For this project, I have put a modest goal, as we are really close to completion of the book. Please check out the project online, peruse the creative rewards – especially the rewards for classrooms and schools, and pass on this email to any friends you think this would be of interest to.

Thanks!

Call for papers - Jewish Educational Leadership

Jewish Educational Leadership invites articles for Spring 2016 issue focusing on Teaching the Whole Child.

The last few decades have witnessed dramatic increases in the extra-curricular and co-curricular programming for students as schools extend their scope from being institutions of learning to institutions of fostering healthy development and growth. In this issue we focus on how classroom instruction itself can address the whole child. We are interested in exploring questions such as:

• Where does Jewish tradition address the social and emotional needs of the student as learner?

• Where and how can students learn skills of coping with frustration, resilience, and “grit” in the course of their classroom experience?

• Is the classroom an appropriate venue for learning or reinforcing interpersonal skills?

• How can we introduce spirituality into Jewish studies learning?

• What are the best ways to foster skills of leadership and followership in a Jewish studies classroom?

• What kinds of teaching modes help students grow to be confident adults capable of productive and healthy functioning outside of the school environment?

Abstracts and proposal for articles will be accepted until Jan 31, 2016.

Please send abstracts, final copies, or questions to the Editor, Zvi Grumet - zvi@lookstein.org.

For more information on the types of articles and guidelines for writers see www.lookstein.org/journal_guidelines.htm.

Jewish Educational Leadership is the professional journal for Jewish educators published by The Lookstein Center for Jewish Education. This publication aims to increase the exposure of Jewish educators to general research and advances in education; in particular, it focuses on the applicability of these findings to the world of Jewish education.

CFP: Joint Conference on Jewish Education, Towson University, Baltimore, MD

The Joint Conference on Jewish Education
The Network for Research in Jewish Education, and
The Association for the Social Scientific Study of Jewry
Towson University, Baltimore, Maryland
June 14-16, 2016

The Network for Research in Jewish Education (NRJE) and the Association for the Social Scientific Study of Jewry (ASSJ) are sponsoring a Joint Conference on Jewish Education. It will be held at Towson University in Baltimore on June 14-16, 2016. The conference will feature papers and discussions across the full range of issues in Jewish education, but will also include a significant component on the social scientific study of Jewish education. The program will encompass the academic study of Jewish education, including matters of particular interest to scholars, practitioners, policy makers and philanthropists.

Submission and Review Process
Members in good standing of the NRJE or the ASSJ are invited to submit proposals to present. All proposals must be received by January 25, 2016. To become a member of either organization or to renew your membership, please follow the directions on the NRJE website, or the ASSJ website. Proposals should be 500-700 words.
Each proposal for the conference requires the completion of an online submission form. Applicants will be notified concerning acceptance byMarch 28, 2016. Please read the description of the various presentation formats, below. Any additional questions about proposals or the review process can be sent to the Conference Chair, Prof. Sylvia Barack Fishman.

Presentation Formats
Proposals can be submitted for complete sessions constructed around either papers or roundtables (preferable), or for individual papers or consultations. Please indicate your preference for format. In some cases the Program Committee and Chair may determine that a different format than the one proposed would be most appropriate for a presentation.

Papers: Presentations of Completed/Nearly Completed Work
Papers can either be submitted as part of a panel (preferable) or individually. Regardless, each paper must be submitted by its author through the online form. Please indicate if your submission should be considered as part of a proposed panel. The Conference Committee will put together individually submitted paper proposals to create panels where quality and thematic consistency apply. Paper presenters should draw on completed or nearly completed—but not published—research. Each presenter will have no more than 20 minutes, to allow time for questions and conversation.

Spotlight Sessions: Open Dialogue about Major Issues
Presentation Format: Spotlight Sessions are intended to spark dialogue and broaden thinking on key issues in Jewish education and Jewish education research. Spotlight Session conveners are encouraged to think broadly and inclusively about both issues and participants. By design, these sessions should be constructed with interactivity at their core, and they may include presentations, experiential learning activities, or discussion. Proposals for Spotlight sessions must include a description of the particular topic at issue as well as the names of participants in the session.

Roundtables: Presentation of Multiple Perspectives on a Single Topic
Presentation Format: Roundtables are designed to create discussions that fall somewhere between the discussion-based format of the Spotlight Session, and the more presentational style of the Paper Presentation Panels. Roundtables offer the opportunity for experts to engage in high-level, research-based discussions of a specific issue, concern, or question. Proposals for Roundtables must include a description of the particular topic at issue as well as the names of participants in the session.

Consultations: Conversation on Initial Ideas or Works in Progress
Presentation Format: This format allows for presenters to consult with peers and mentors about works in progress, ideas in the initial stage of formation, or research that is still in progress. Proposals for consultations should offer as much detail as possible about the project at issue, its current stage of development, and the specific kinds of insight and input you are seeking.

Fellowship: AJS Dissertation Completion Fellowship

The Association for Jewish Studies invites applications for its first annual Dissertation Completion Fellowship competition. Funded for five years, this fellowship program will award seven finishing-year fellowships annually ($20,000 each) to PhD students entering the final year of their programs and completing a dissertation in the field of Jewish Studies. The 2016 competition will support fellowships during the 2016-2017 academic year. This program is generously supported through a grant from Legacy Heritage Fund. Application deadline is March 2, 2016. 

The Dissertation Completion Fellowships will encourage the timely completion of doctorates by the most promising graduate students in the field; create a cohort of fellows who will lead the field of Jewish Studies for decades to come; expose new audiences to Jewish Studies scholarship through fellows’ public lectures; and promote continued growth of academic Jewish Studies, at a time of institutional cutbacks in the humanities and social sciences. The program will both provide resources to fellows, in the form of a $20,000 stipend, as well as professional development opportunities, through a mid-year workshop and ongoing contact with mentors during the fellowship year. Particular attention will be dedicated to training the fellows to speak publicly, in an accessible fashion, about their work. Only students who are in the final stages of writing their dissertations and who display clear evidence of their ability to defend their dissertations by July 2017 are eligible to apply for this program.

A unique feature of the program will be its public engagement component. Each fellow will be asked to give one public lecture or workshop at the end of their fellowship year in which they will share their research with a general audience. The purpose of this public speaking component is to give fellows crucial experience in making their work accessible to an interested but non-expert public, and to help satisfy the great demand for engaging and sophisticated discussion of Jewish history, literature, religion, and culture.

For further information, including application instructions, please visit the AJS website.

Questions? Contact Amy Weiss, AJS Grants Manager, at aweiss@ajs.cjh.org or 917.606.8249.

Jewish Education Innovation Challenge grants

Reminder for $50,000 Grants Offered to Jewish Day Schools Due December 18th

Fourth Annual Jewish Education Innovation Challenge

The Jewish Education Innovation Challenge (JEIC), sponsored by the Mayberg Family Foundation, is soliciting proposals to pilot innovative educational models in Jewish day schools. The objective is to identify and fund experimentation with new methodologies that foster and reward student effort, enthusiasm and proficiency.

To empower educators and administrators to disrupt the status quo, JEIC awards multiple grants up to $50,000 each over two years to programs that represent a paradigm shift in Jewish education. According to JEIC Managing Director, Rabbi Shmuel Feld, “We want to see reflected in the Letter of Intent a school based program that describes a team of colleagues who can transform their educational context in a game changing manner with the support of their board. This is not about a singular curriculum; it’s about changing the experience of Judaic education.” Throughout the grant period, grantees will have access to our educational and research staff to help their pilot programs succeed.

Selected programs must be revolutionary, practical, sustainable, accountable and scalable. Last year, JEIC awarded several grants, totaling more than $130,000. The deadline for the initial Letter of Interest is December 18, 2015. In an unusually transparent grant process, finalists present their ideas at the Foundation’s annual “Innovators Retreat” on June 1st and 2nd 2016 and grant winners are announced in late June.

Grants awarded through the Challenge are open to any Jewish day school (grades 6-12) in the United States and Canada. Eligibility and submission guidelines can be found at the Jewish Education Innovation Challenge website: www.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.

Kleinman Holocaust Education Center-Holocaust Diaries Student Contest

KFHEC has launched its 2016 Student Contest: "The Holocaust Diaries, READ, REFLECT AND RESPOND." Winning entries will receive valuable Visa Gift Cards as prizes! Nine prizes will be offered this year. The grand prize for each grade level is $250. Second place winners will receive $100 and Third place winners will receive $50. The first 100 participating teachers will receive a free copy of "The unfinished Diary-A Chronicle of Tears" by Chaim Yitzchok Wogolanter. 

During the Holocaust, there were Jews who documented their experiences in letters and diaries. These testimonies speak of everyday experiences, personal suffering and hope as well as collective experiences of the Jewish communities. As real time personal accounts, they often provide insight into the faith and courage individuals possessed during the Holocaust. We present these three diaries as a memory to those who perished during the Holocaust as well as means to inspire their readers to develop faith and courage in the face of life’s challenges. 

Submission deadline is March 1, 2016

History Unfolded: U.S. Newspapers and the Holocaust

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is launching a “citizen history” project to examine Holocaust coverage during the 1930s and 1940s in local newspapers throughout the United States. Information about Nazi persecution and murder of Jews and others was available to the American public as it happened. This project will provide insight into how Americans—from ordinary citizens to the president—understood the threat of Nazism, perceived responsibility to respond to the Nazis’ expansionist and murderous goals, and dealt with the challenges that influenced response options. 

“Citizen historians” will be asked to engage in primary research using online databases, microfilm, and/or hardcopies of newspapers in local libraries, universities, and historical societies, and submit their resulting research data into a centralized online database. 

This project encourages participants to:
• Explore Holocaust history as both an American story and a local story;
• Learn how to use primary sources in historical research;
• Challenge assumptions about American knowledge of and responses to the Holocaust; and
• Help the Museum collect data on local and regional U.S. newspaper coverage of the Holocaust.

Everyone is welcome to participate. 

Data collected through this project will help the Museum visualize trends in American reporting on the Holocaust and further scholarly research about the American press and the Holocaust. It will also inform the Museum’s upcoming Americans and the Holocaust exhibition, slated to open in 2018. 

Visit newspapers.ushmm.org to help the Museum test the Beta version. 

Contact Aleisa Fishman (Museum historian) at afishman@ushmm.org with any questions.

Global Hatikvah: A show of solidarity with Israel

In light of the tragic news in Israel these past weeks including the death of Ezra Schwartz, a graduate of Maimonides High School, and Rabbi Yakov Don, a former shaliach at TanenbaumCHAT and B’nei Akiva in Toronto, the students at TanenbaumCHAT in Toronto invite schools and other interested organizations around North America and beyond to a global, simultaneous singing of Hatikvah in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Israel.

On Monday, December 7 at 12:30 p.m. EST, students from around the world will sing together Hatikva and proclaim loudly that we will not join the chorus of the silent. We stand with Israel. We are a united people whose highest aspirations are to live in peace and “to be a free people living in our land.” We, the Jewish people, are "chazakim b'yachad." 

Thus far, participants include schools in Bogota, Colombia; Melbourne, Australia; San Diego, CA; Cincinnati, OH; Durham, NC; Detroit, MI; Hamilton, Ontario; Montreal, Quebec; Teaneck, NJ; Rockland County, NY; Toronto, Ontario; and Fredericksburg, VA.

Interested parties will need:
• a quality web cam (HD is preferable) OR a high quality video camera that can be connected to a computer / laptop
• audio speakers
• a microphone (external is preferable)
• a projector and screen attached to a computer to project the exciting event
• a tech person who will be your contact person
• an assembly of students to sing on cue

Some schools are participating as part of a Chanukah assembly, others in the context of a larger Israel program; some are assembling for the sole purpose of singing Hatikva together.

Please connect at least 30 minutes in advance so that the technology is set up, as the singing will happen at 12:30 p.m.sharp.

To sign up and receive more information, go to http://tinyurl.com/hatikvahtogether
A link will be provided prior to December 7 to connect you to participating schools.

The Talmudic Portrait Gallery with Leah Rosenthal at the Pardes Institute, Jerusalem

We wanted to let you know about a great new series that we have coming up given by Pardes favorite Leah Rosenthal on The Talmudic Portrait Gallery. This series will consist of a close reading and discussion of a selection of literary portraits of central Rabbinic figures who produced the canonical Rabbinic texts that make up the foundations of Jewish tradition. 

Nov 24Rabbi Elazar ben Arach – Described as an “overflowing fountain”, Rabbi Elazar ben Arach appears to represent the creative and dynamic impulse of the intellectual and spiritual world. How does Rabbinic narrative preserve the image of this man and what does his story tell us about him, and about the Rabbinic world narrating his story? What mark does his story leave on “mainstream” Rabbinic culture, perhaps to this very day?

Dec 1Rabbi Eliezer ben Horkanus– A contemporary of Rabbi Elazar ben Arach, Rabbi Eliezer is described as a “plastered water cistern, that never loses a drop”. As such, he appears to represent the conservative, unchanging voice of tradition. How does his story unfold in Rabbinic literature? How is he presented and what role does he play in the development of Talmudic tradition?

Dec 15Rabbi Akiva– An undisputed Master of Oral Law, Rabbi Akiva fills the pages of the Mishna and Talmud with his rulings and with his charismatic personality. What image emerges from a close reading of some of these texts? How is the story of Rabbi Akiva narrated within Talmudic texts and what do these stories reveal about the deeper, inner workings of the Talmudic world?

Dec 22Rabban Gamliel– A descendent and heir of the Patriarchal dynasty established by Hillel, Rabban Gamliel is called upon to lead the Jewish people and the Rabbinic world at a particularly challenging and difficult time. How is the leadership of Rabban Gamliel remembered and recorded in Talmudic texts? How does his story reflect some of the tensions and debates of his time, and perhaps of all times?

Dec 29: Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai– Perhaps more than any other Talmudic figure the character of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai has shifted and changed over time. Here is an opportunity to closely follow his story as recorded in the Talmud and to consider how and why this figure developed into the powerful and charismatic personality still revered and impacting the Jewish experience today.

Jan 5: Rabbi Yehuda Hanassi– No visit to the Talmudic Portrait Gallery would be complete without a consideration of the strong, dominant character of Rabbi Yehuda Hanassi – the redactor of the Mishna. We will read a selection of stories and anecdotes that are recorded within Rabbinic tradition that will highlight the complexities of the man who takes his place, alongside Moses, as a “Giver of Torah”- unquestionably impacting Jewish practice and tradition to this very day.

Please note there will be no class on Chanukah Dec 8.
