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.

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.

To help educators understand what their graduates are likely to experience on campus. High school graduates are increasingly likely to confront expressions of hatred and hostility toward Jews and supporters of Israel on college campuses in America and Canada.

To cultivate an environment for educators to share best practices for teaching about Israel hatred when it devolves into a form of anti-Semitism. Educators will have an opportunity to engage with their colleagues to discuss pedagogical practices, curriculum ideas, and multiple lenses through which to examine, explore and transmit this content to day school students.

To identify, together, the tools, materials, instructional practices and activities needed to effectively prepare their students for contemporary life on campus and beyond. 

Travel and hotel accommodations covered.
Kosher meals and refreshments provided.

Questions? Contact Rachel Glazer, conference@brandeis.edu
or Rachel Fish, rlfish@brandeis.edu.

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.

Moot Beit Din Information Session for Orthodox Schools

Moot Beit Din challenges Jewish high school students to grapple with the ways in which Jewish law can be applied to important contemporary issues. Assigned a case such as internet privacy, industrialized meat, or end of life medical ethics, participants study halachic sources and produce a written decision to present before a panel of judges as part of a shabbaton weekend. As Moot Beit Din becomes a program run through NewOrg, the new national day school organization being formed from the merger of PARDES, PEJE, RAVSAK, Schechter, and YUSP, Moot Beit Din will be expanding to include more Orthodox schools. 

We are pleased to invite school leaders and educators from Orthodox high schools to join us for a video conference to learn about Moot Beit Din on Tuesday, June 7 from 2-3pm ET. For more information and to RSVP contact Yael Steiner at yael@ravsak.org

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:

Doctoral survey: General studies teachers in Jewish Day Schools

Dear Participant,

As a final project for my doctorate I will examine the perceptions and motivations of Orthodox Jewish general studies teachers who choose to teach in Orthodox Jewish Day School. An extensive search into the professional literature on Orthodox Jewish general studies teachers reveals a scarcity of research that delves into perceptions and motivations of these teachers. Additionally, there is little research on how Orthodox Jewish general studies teachers perceive the influence of their personal religious beliefs on their instruction in the classroom. 

The results will enhance an understanding of the cognitive and social processes involved for Orthodox Jewish general studies teachers who choose to teach secular studies in Orthodox Jewish day schools and the influence of their personal religious beliefs on their instruction in the classroom.

The survey should take only 5-7 minutes to complete. Be assured that the answers you provide will be kept in the strictest confidentiality. 

If you would like to contact me, my email address is kesser57@aol.com.
Thank you in advance for your participation.
