Torah iTextbook Project Update - Online Version Now Available


This past year 6 schools implemented the Torah iTextbook Projects sugyah based gemara curriculum in their middle school classes. While most of the schools used our iBooks for iPads, Macs and iPhones, one of the schools beta-tested our online version which was developed in conjunction with Gemara Berura. The online version is available to both schools who are using the gemara berura system and to those who are not yet full Gemara Berura subscribers. The online system includes a free limited version of Gemara Berurah but can be used independently.

A recent study of our graduating eighth grade students who have learned gemara using the project for the past three years showed that they were able to retain a large number of keywords and common words that they learned in the sugyot, that they retained a majority of the information learned and that they absorbed a great majority of the relevance of the sugyot to their every day lives. A great majority of the students endorsed their desire to continue learning gemarah in high school and beyond.

For more information on how your school can implement this exciting gemara curriculum please visit our website at www.HDSTIP.org or email Rabbi Mordechai Smolarcik, Project Director at rabsmo@me.com.

The Torah iTextbook Project is made possible by a grant from the Jewish Education Innovation Challenge, an initiative of the Mayberg Family Charitable Foundation.

Hebrew classroom magazines from Israel for Jewish Day Schools

Dubon, Ezbeoni and Pilpel are Hebrew classroom magazines designed and created by Rami Shir, editor of the Israel's beloved Ezbeoni children's magazines (est. 1952). These Hebrew classroom magazines have been created specifically for students learning Hebrew outside of Israel. They bring modern Hebrew and Israel to your students in a single package.

Our classroom magazines are aligned with the ACTFL world readiness standards (communication, cultures, connections, comparisons, and communities) and are designed with principles of second language acquisition in mind. Content is engaging, relevant and exciting to students learning Hebrew and learning about their connection to the Medinat Yisrael
Content areas include Israeli geography, history, famous personalities, modern Hebrew expressions, news from Israel and around  the world and more. There is a leveled magazine for each age or grade level from K-8th grade. Our middle school edition, Pilpel, is new for September of 2016.
We would love to welcome your schools and your students into our community of schools and organizations across the globe using Dubon, Ezbeoni and Pilpel in their classrooms. Orders for the 2016-17 school year are currently in progress.

New website: Jewish Values Online

Jewish Values Online is a website devoted to offering information about Jewish values and ethics from multi-denominational perspectives. The core of the site is a repository of hundreds of questions about Jewish values. Each question has been answered by an Orthodox, a Conservative and a Reform rabbi from JVO's panel. You can ask a question or search for existing answers to questions such as:

Is a Jewish parent required or obliged by Jewish law or Jewish values to leave anything to their children in their will?
What does Judaism say about intermarriage? What if the couple intends to raise their child to be Jewish?

Is it a Jewish value to support the notion that government should do more to reduce the gap between the rich and the poor?
I am taking a college course on Politics and Religion. Why don't Jews, like Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses and other faiths go out and spread the word?

There are hundreds of such questions that have been asked and answered on the site. There is also a blog that publishes posts discussing issues related to Jewish values several times a week. To subscribe to the blog, look for the subscription option in the right hand column here.

All information on jewishvaluesonline.org is available at no cost.

As an added incentive to place orders by July 9th, we are offering a 10% discount to all schools for teachers' materials ordered by then. (Schools which currently use our materials will receive a 15% discount on teacher books).

Additionally, due to a grant, schools that order materials by July 9th will be eligible for a special discount on our new Hilchot Tefilla student books ordered for students in their ninth grade. Schools will be able to receive the Hilchot Tefilla books at the heavily discounted price of $20 a book (almost half price) when meeting the following terms:
• The books must be ordered for the entire ninth grade in the school
• Every student must receive their own copy of the book to write in over the school year
[Feel free to ask any questions or clarifications regarding these terms]

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

Jewish Gaming Site - Kerem b'Yavneh

Frankel Jewish Academy is pleased to pave the way in educational gaming with the first Jewish game of its kind - Kerem b'Yavneh

Get excited by watching the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orsRmAUyaho&feature=youtu.be

Be inspired by new vistas of student learning by playing the free game (it may take a few days to unlock all the features):

Access our new game Kerem b'Yaven and our previous game Sparks of Eternity at www.JewishGaming.com

Educators please note: There is an educator's portal where you can create your own class communities and assign separate questions and quests into the game, and push rewards to players. Please e-mail me for access to this feature.

Please pass this link on to anyone who you think is interested (I need your help to publicise this new resource).

The blurb:

The Vineyards of Yavneh Await!

The fun and quirkiness of your favorite farming and city-building games meet the richness and vibrancy of Jewish ritual, history, and thought. Run a profitable homestead, observe festivals, learn Torah, and experience life and community in ancient Yavneh, the birthplace of post Temple Judaism.

Kerem B'Yavneh~(Vineyards of Yavneh or KeBY) is a casual, social, religious education, homestead-simulation, world-building game. There ís even some cooking involved! Our story unfolds in ancient Yavneh, a small agricultural community that was transformed into the center of Jewish life and learning after the destruction of Jerusalem's Second Temple by the Roman Empire in 70 CE (the subject of our first game, Sparks of Eternity). You, a budding scholar-farmer, are leading this transformation. In KeBY, players must adhere to traditional Rabbinic law, culture, and practice while raising a family, growing crops of increasing diversity and goodness, trading in the marketplace, and helping Yavneh flourish.

Never before have there been Jewish games both so cutting-edge and so well-adapted to use in an educational setting. KeBY makes history come alive, brings context to Rabbinic literature, and provides a deeply interactive vehicle for critical thinking, discussion, and classroom debate. The game, which can be played by each student concurrently as a classroom community, provides in-game rewards for out-of-game work in school. Instead of using a pay-to-play model, KeBY promotes study-to-play, collaboration, and friendly competition amongst players. It enables the teacher to create customized content within the game to enhance and reinforce classroom learning and motivate players to truly engage in the material.
