STAJE Seminar for Teachers in Jewish Schools, The Museum of Jewish Heritage

STAJE Seminar for Teachers in Jewish Schools
Polish-Jewish Relations in Historical Perspective
March 9, 2014 , 12:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Jews in Poland have a rich, if troubled history. In the Interwar period Jewish schools, political parties and organizations flourished, yet powerful anti-Semitism also arose. During the Holocaust, there were many Polish collaborators but also many Polish rescuers. After the war, despite continuing anti-Semitism and the departure of most Jews, Jewish life goes on and is growing. 

Join us as we examine the relationship between Jews and non-Jewish Poles from the end of the First World War to the present day. Outstanding scholars Samuel Kassow (Trinity College), Natalia Aleksiun (Touro College), and activist and journalist Konstanty Gebert (Warsaw, Poland) will explore this fascinating history. 

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

This STAJE Seminar is made possible by The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany: The Rabbi Israel Miller Fund for Shoah Research, Documentation and Education with additional support from and special thanks to Sigmund Rolat.

Learn more about our workshops by visiting www.israeled.org/workshops

CIE’s mission is to be a source destination for learners and educators about modern Israel. Evidence from twelve years of work in the field tells us that there is an enormous desire on the part of educators and learners of all ages to know Israel’s story. Personally and professionally, there is a passion to own and appreciate Israel’s central role in modern Jewish identity. Our comparative advantage is that we link cutting edge scholarship with gifted curriculum designers. We help others know, learn, own and transmit the critical role Israel has played in transforming modern Jewish history, the lives of Jews everywhere, and its central importance to the American national interest. Awakening and spreading a paradigm change in learning about Israel are our objectives. We believe that Jews, especially, should know Israel like they know the ‘Four Questions.’

Please encourage teachers from your school to attend. Enrollment is open to first-time participants of a one-week CIE/ISMI Professional Development Workshop on Modern Israel.
The application deadline is March 24, 2014. Spaces are limited, apply before February 28th and the application fee is only $99.

Thank you, 
Ken Stein, President
Center for Israel Education

February 16, 2014 from 12:30 P.M. to 5 P.M.

Although the Holocaust largely skirted then Muslim world, during the war years there were Muslim rescuers as well as a small number of Nazi-collaborators. Since 1945 and the establishment of the State of Israel, the Holocaust has been acknowledged, used (and denied) in Muslim countries to achieve a variety of goals.

Educational Partnerships at Shutaf Inclusion Programs in Jerusalem

My name is Elizabeth Corlin, Director of Educational Partnerships at Shutaf Inclusion Programs in Jerusalem. I'm also a former day school teacher and informal educator from Los Angeles. 

February is Jewish Disabilities Awareness Month (JDAM). Shutaf is looking to connect with you in order to implement collaborative activities at your school during JDAM and beyond. We've run a variety of programs with educational partners in the US and Israel, for children as well as teens, and have found that talking disability and inclusion is also a great way to create real connections between participants of all ages, from Israel to the US. Here are some conversation ideas and role-play scenarios that you can use in your classroom this February - http://www.lookstein.org/resources/jewishdisabilityawareness2014.pdf

We're also interested in learning about great inclusion initiatives running already and would love to hear from you if you're involved in one.

I look forward to being in touch,

Call for Papers: The International Journal of Jewish Education Research

The International Journal of Jewish Education Research is planning a special issue to commemorate the work of Elliot Eisner (March 10, 1933 – January 10, 2014), the eminent educational theorist, researcher, writer and practitioner, and to explore its relevance to Jewish education.

Professor Eisner’s contributions to educational research are extraordinary. He provided us with an entire conceptual language and developed qualitative approaches to viewing education through an aesthetic lens. In their obituary for Eisner, The Stanford News (Jan. 17, 2014) wrote that Eisner’s extensive writing stressed “that the arts are critically important to the development of thinking skills in children and that the arts might offer teachers both a powerful guide and critical tool in their practice. He wrote 17 books and dozens of papers addressing curriculum, aesthetic intelligence, teaching, learning and qualitative measurement.” Eisner suggested that we view classrooms and schools through an aesthetic lens, as connoisseurs view works of art, and he developed these ideas into qualitative methodology for understanding, evaluating and improving education.

We invite papers on the following themes, as well as others:

- An integrative analysis of Eisner’s major works and their implications for Jewish education
- Articles that explore how one or more specific aspects of Eisner’s work could be used to enrich Jewish education
- A new look at how Eisner’s work could and should be applied in Jewish education research
- Case studies and other reports of research into Jewish education that use Eisner’s aesthetic approach

Please send letters of intent to submit an article with a brief description of the proposed topic, to the above editorial address, no later than April 30, 2014. Information on length of articles, format and other editorial guidelines can be found at http://www.biu.ac.il/SOC/ijjer/Author%20Guidelines.html

Completed articles should be submitted no later thanOctober 15th, 2014. Planned publication date is May, 2015.

We're seeking articles on specific challenges to small, medium and large schools, as well as articles discussing how certain issues play out differently depending on school size.

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 educators. Adaptation of material previously published in academic journals or elsewhere is acceptable. Articles promoting a particular product or organization will not be published. If interested, contact Elliott Rabin at erabin@ravsak.org. Submit a brief description of topic only, not a full article. Article deadline is March 31; proposals requested byFebruary 24.

HaYidion: The RAVSAK Journal is published quarterly for distribution to RAVSAK member schools and on a subscription basis. (Previous issues can be accessed at www.ravsak.org/hayidion.)

Articles provide guidance, information and inspiration to administrators, teachers and lay leaders in Jewish day schools worldwide.

Please visit http://9adar.org/schools/ to learn more about the program and how your school can participate. To register, go to http://9adar.org/sign-up/ . Feel free to contact ilanalipman@pardes.org.il with any questions.


9 Adar - Never heard of it? You’re not alone! The 9th of Adar is the day, approximately 2,000 years ago, on which the initially peaceful and constructive conflict (machloket l’shem shamayim) between Beit Hillel andBeit Shammai, erupted into a violent and destructive conflict over a vote on 18 legal matters leading to the death of 3,000 students. The day was later declared a fast day; however, it was never observed as such.

The Pardes Center for Judaism and Conflict Resolution and The Pardes Center for Jewish Educators have therefore chosen this day to be the International Jewish Day of Constructive Conflict (machloketl’shem shamayim), dedicated to both the study and practice of Judaism and conflict resolution.

Join schools and organizations around the world!

There are many ways your school can participate in the Jewish Day of Constructive Conflict being marked on February 1-9, 2014.

1. Commemorate
Fast from destructive speech (ta’anit dibbur)
Contribute (tzedakah)
Pray (tefilah)
Cook/eat (se’udah)

2. Study
Give a dvar torah
Study about machloket l’shem shamayim
Announce/share/tell
Create (art, poetry, music)

3. Practice
Establish a rodef shalom agreement (haskamah)
Greet others as a rodef shalom
Invite a professional rodef shalom to speak at your school

Turn this 9 Adar into the Jewish Day of Constructive Conflict.
Register today at

Biblical fiction: Warrior Prophets series

I'm doing it! I'm joining the social network crowdfunding revolution! I've started a Kickstarter project to publish my book and I need your help.

I'm publishing Warrior Prophets - Joshua: Conqueror, the first ofThe Boaz Trilogy biblical fiction/fantasy series. If you loved Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings and you always wondered what a biblical adventure novel filled with fun, excitement, swords and sorcery would look like, then please make a pledge.

The way Kickstarter works is very simple. You make a pledge (as little as $2). If we reach our project goal ($6,000 worth of pledges) then and only then your credit card is charged, we make the book, and you get the amazing rewards depending on your pledge level.

However, if we don't reach the project goal, you are not charged and I hide my head out of shame and embarrassment - until my next project.

Please visit my Kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/676741209/warrior-prophets-joshua-conqueror) page, watch the video, read about the project, check out the rewards and make a pledge.

It will be sincerely appreciated and rewarded.

Thanks!

Day School Teachers: Take the Leap to Teach in Hebrew, Register Now

Dear Educators:

I am pleased to share that The Davidson Graduate School at JTS will run its popular Ivriyon Hebrew immersion program June 30 - July 24, 2014.

"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 Alumnus

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 full subsidized. As an added bonus, participants are matched with a mentor who can guide them through implementation through the 2014-15 school year.

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

Celebrations! Program webinar - Jewish Disabilities Awareness Month

February is Jewish Disabilities Awareness Month and many synagogues will be focusing attention on disability awareness and how they are meeting (or missing) the needs of their members who have special needs.

Celebrations! is a monthly Shabbat and holiday family program that reaches children, teens and young adults of all abilities. It engages their siblings and creates community for their parents while offering participants developmentally-appropriate Jewish learning and ritual. Our "reverse inclusion" model creates an environment that is comfortable for all children and integrates typically developing peers and their families. We are now looking for the next cohort of synagogues to pilot the Celebrations! in their communities.

Please join us for a free interactive webinar on Tuesday, February 4th from 11am--Noon to learn more about how you can adapt the Celebrations! model in your community with:
• Our comprehensive, two-year curriculum (written with support from a 2012 Covenant Foundation Ignition Grant) featuring lesson plans, specially designed stories and parent resources
• Training from the Celebrations! teams
• Celebrations! Shabbatonim for your community

Bring your questions about engaging and supporting community members with complex, diverse needs. We look forward to connecting with you! Click here to register for the webinar or request more info on Celebrations!.

L'shalom,
Rabbi Michelle Greenfield and Gabrielle Kaplan-Mayer, Program Coordinators

Daf Yomi Survey



I am working on a doctoral dissertation and am
looking for volunteers to spend a few minutes filling out an anonymous online
survey relating to the use of technology in learning Daf Yomi or Gemara in
general.  The survey actually contains information you might find useful,
as well.  It can be accessed by clicking http://www.tinyurl.com/gemarasurvey.
 The more people you could pass this on to the better, as I need to have a
significant sample for the study.
