Romania and the Holocaust, Museum of Jewish Heritage, NYC

March 1, 2015 from 12:30 P.M. to 5 P.M.

Romania was an ally of Germany and had its own fascist, anti-Semitic movement. While a large percentage of Jews from Bessarabia and Bukovina were murdered, most of the Jews in central Romania remained alive. Join us as we investigate how Romanian Jews suffered in the Holocaust, and also through great effort, how more than half of them survived. 

Outstanding scholars Radu Ioanid (United States Holocaust Memorial Museum) and Randolph Braham (CUNY Graduate Center) will guide us through our investigation of this fascinating topic. Rabbi Mayer Moskowitz will give testimony about his experiences in Romania during this tragic period.

We hope you will join us for what should be a fascinating seminar. 

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).

Great Jewish Books Teacher Workshop, Yiddish Book Center, Amherst, MA

I went to a Jewish day school through 12th grade, and I learned an enormous amount there. But it wasn’t until college that I was introduced to the riches of modern Jewish literature, from Sholem Aleichem and Dvora Baron to Cynthia Ozick and Etgar Keret—to the vast library of modern texts that are deeply rooted in an ancient literary tradition and that, more directly and brilliantly than anything else, addressed my questions about what it means to be a Jew in today’s world. 

I see the same powerful response to that literature in the students who come to the Yiddish Book Center for our Great Jewish Books Summer Program. Whether they bring deep backgrounds in Tanakh and Talmud, or have had little previous exposure to the classical Jewish texts, the students are inspired by this literature to think deeply and critically about who they are, where they come from, and what choices they face. Best of all, the books connect the students to one another and lead them to further reading and study. 

Unfortunately, modern Jewish literature still isn’t taught in many Jewish schools. That’s why this summer, the Yiddish Book Center will host our first Great Jewish Books Teacher Workshop -http://www.yiddishbookcenter.org/great-jewish-books/teacher-workshop. Designed for high school teachers in Jewish day schools—in a variety of disciplines, including English and language arts, social studies, and Jewish history—and in supplemental schools, the workshop will inspire and support teachers eager to introduce a wide variety of modern Jewish literary and cultural materials into their curricula.

With support from the Jim Joseph Foundation, the workshop will allow twenty high school teachers to work together, in person and virtually, for a full academic year. From July 26-31, they’ll spend six days at the Yiddish Book Center in Amherst, Massachusetts, studying major works of modern Jewish literature and popular culture. Working together and with faculty mentors, they’ll also develop materials and innovative approaches for teaching these materials. In the following academic year, the teachers will continue to receive support, including one-on-one mentorship, and to connect with each other through a virtual community. Teachers selected to participate will receive free tuition and stipends to make their participation possible. 

All the details can be found here: http://www.yiddishbookcenter.org/great-jewish-books/teacher-workshop/. As a friend and supporter of the Yiddish Book Center, I hope you can help us to the spread word of this remarkable opportunity to the teachers in your community. Forward this email, or tell them face-to-face about the new program. I would be delighted to hear from you with suggestions of teachers and school administrators to contact. 

Working together, we can connect more students with Jewish literary treasures that will inspire and transform the way they think about Jewishness and about themselves. 

Best,
Josh Lambert
Academic Director, Yiddish Book Center
Visiting Assistant Professor, English, UMass Amherst

Aleinu Leshabe’ach: A Tefilah Symposium, Machon Pardes, Jerusalem

The Pardes Center for Jewish Educators presents:

Summer Professional Development Opportunity for Administrators, Tefilah Coordinators and Facilitators

Aleinu Leshabe’ach: A Tefilah Symposium. Join colleagues, tefilah researchers and leaders in the field for an intensive five-day working forum on tefilah in Jewish day schools. 

Tefilah and tefilah education are at the core of the day school experience. And yet, tefilah is undoubtedly one of the most challenging aspects of the curriculum, and few teachers/administrators feel they have fully succeeded in this area. Thankfully, this can change. This symposium will be an opportunity to apply what we know about best practices to prayer education.

Goals:
• to inspire the participants to become better tefilah educators 
• to uncover a wide range of goals for tefilah education and explore ways to meet those goals
• to examine useful and current research
• to reflect on what is happening in the field
• to share our collective wisdom
• to return to your schools motivated and prepared to take tefilah the next step

Ten awardees will receive full grants for transportation, room + board and program participation. Apply by February 1, 2015. Awardees will be notified by February 15, 2015.

Models Of Jewish Learning (MOJL)

M’korot: Learning Jewish History Via Primary Sources
This model can complement most history courses with students exploring primary sources of the period they’re studying. M’korot can transform entire courses so that careful analysis of primary sources replaces history textbooks. The MOJL contains theoretical material on the why and how of primary sources—plus a bibliography of sources, for the what of M’korot.

- Organic Hebrew: Language Culture in the Child’s Idiom
Using the techniques Sylvia Ashton-Warner developed in her book,Teacher, this MOJL is designed to supplement formal instruction in first year Hebrew study. It’s meant for young children, and links a foreign language to a child’s inner mind.

Hevrutah: Peer Coupling for Textual Study
Hevrutah uses a time-tested model for text study, breaking down frontal teaching. This MOJL combines theory and detailed description of classroom dynamics. When “good” hevruta text study skills and dispositions are taught, learning and the learners are transformed. Teachers at all levels interested in the power of collaborative learning will find conceptual and practical tools to enhance their students’ learning and inspire their teaching.

- Midrashic Drama: Experiencing Biblical Narrative’s Emotional Content
Most Bible study is cognitive. Using theater improvisation helps both teachers and students to explore Tanach narratives’ emotional side. ThisMOJL blends the midrashic act with body exercises to create exciting commentary on ancient tales.

A New Film That is Perfect for a Yom Hashoa Program in a School

This is a film unlike any other in Destiny’s Faith and Faith series, and unlike any other Holocaust film ever made. No graphic scenes will be shown and no overview of the period explaining this unique event will be described. Rather, this film will trace the unique and amazing story of one particular family, its trials, tribulations and difficulties it faced in order to survive, beginning long before the Holocaust with the Inquisition and continuing with the family until today. Then, this film will also show how from the ashes of the horror of the Holocaust, when the very fate and continuity of Judaism itself was in doubt, how many survivors themselves were the leaders who helped rebuild Judaism, contributing greatly not only to Judaism’s survival, but also to help Judaism thrive today in some ways as never before. The film ends by showing an overview of the Torah community today as it thrives.

If you would like to view two segments of the film and find out how to buy it, please email Rabbi Dr. Nachum Amsel at nachum@jewishdestiny.com

Torah iTextbook Project Update

After two years of production and beta-testing the Torah iTextbook Project is proud to announce that our library of 20 iTextbooks is ready for release to schools. Each iTextbook covers a particular sugyah (topic) and includes a trigger film, the relevant pesukim, sections of gemara and related halachic rulings and responsa. The particular sugyot were chosen as those that are relevant to everyday life issues. The library includes iTextbooks on the issues of gun control (HaBah BeMachteret), taking personal responsibility (Shliach L’Davar Aveirah), taking another’s perspective (Eilu V’Eilu), Internal vs external beauty (Hiddur Mitzvah) and others. In addition to the presentation of the sugyah material the iTextbooks include interactive review and assessment exercises. Our Beta testing and related survey data has shown dramatic increases in student engagement. appreciation for gemara study and increased levels of skill building in reading and translating talmudic and halachic texts.

Rabbi Mordechai Smolarcik, Project Director of the Torah iTextbook Project will be presenting on the fundamentals of the iTextbooks and on the results of the project’s survey data at the 2015 North American Jewish Day School Conference on Tuesday, March 10th at 11:45 AM. In addition the iTextbooks can be sampled during the conference’s playground sessions on Sunday and Monday March 8-9.

The Torah iTextbook Project is made possible through a generous grant from the Mayberg Family Charitable Foundation, awarded through their Jewish Education Innovation Challenge.

For more information on how your school can use these excellent and dynamic educational tools please contact Rabbi Smolarcik at rabsmo@me.com.

Internet Resource: "Printing the Talmud: From Bomberg to Schottenstein"

To our colleagues who have been using the "Printing the Talmud" website (previously www.printingthtalmud.org): 
The website presents the online version of Yeshiva University Museum's groundbreaking exhibition and catalogue, Printing the Talmud: From Bomberg to Schottenstein.

This online resource -- which encompasses all of the information of the printed catalogue, including the scholarly essays on the history of the Talmud, and the catalogue entries and images of each item -- 
has moved.

The new address is: http://www.jewishhistory.com/PRINTINGTHETALMUD/

We encourage you to disseminate this information to other scholars and students who might be interested. 

Sharon Liberman Mintz and Gabriel Goldstein (Editors)

New website: www.practicalhalacha.com

Need to know a Halacha?
No rabbi is around to ask?
Check www.practicalhalacha.com for a quick answer to thousands of halachic questions.
Rabbi Moshe Heinemann has reviewed and approved every halacha.

Features:
• Single Opinion - Most halachot present only one opinion, so the user can quickly figure out what to do without scholarly analysis of many differing opinions.
• Intuitive - The Practical Halacha website is designed to be intuitive: you can find the halacha you seek by category, by keyword, or via the glossary. The halachot are searchable and organized. 
• Study Text - Practical Halacha can be used as a study text. Similar actions are grouped together to show similarities and differences between them. Subjects are taught by topic so that instead of memorizing thousands of halachot, a few dozen principles can cover many situations and many halachot.
• Introductions - For people unfamiliar with halacha, including non-observant Jews and even non-Jews, the introductions to each category can help give context and background to the actual halachot.
• Print - Practical Halacha can be printed in its entirety (see Read/Print as a Book on the upper right of the home page) or by section, or custom files may be assembled. Pull-out sections designed to be printed for easy use include the Siddur guide, Hagada, and Nida; the Shabbat and Holiday halachot can be printed for use on Shabbat and Chagim.
• Charts - Diagrams, charts, and photographs have been added to help clarify certain halachot. These may also be printed for quick reference. For example, the charts of milk and meat can be printed (and laminated) and kept in kitchens for quick reference.

These halachot are not intended to replace a rabbi who knows you personally or who knows the details of your specific question; rather the website is intended for when you have no access to a rabbi, such as right before Shabbat or Yom Tov, when travelling, or when the local rabbi does not have the expertise of a posek. Additionally, the website is useful as a convenient study text when no halachic books are available.

If any of you use this for teaching and you can suggest ways we can make it better as a teaching resource (or other content or functions which would be useful for teachers), please write to us.

Please take a look at the website. The URL is www.practicalhalacha.com
If you like it, please send the link to everyone you know who might be interested in it.

CFP: HaYidion

RAVSAK: The Jewish Community Day School Network is seeking proposals for the spring issue of HaYidion. The issue theme is "Excellence." we seek articles presenting a variety of perspectives on how to define excellence, what excellence looks and feels like, how to recognize excellence in different ways and functions of day schools. We seek a mix of articles starting with a general notion of excellence that draw upon examples, along with others that start from a particular example and seek to draw larger conclusions from it. Articles might broach the following areas (not exhaustive): models of day school excellence; probing the notion of excellence and its applicability, or not, to day schools; defining and evaluating excellence in Judaics, as broadly understood; tensions generated by the notion of excellence, such as academic excellence vs. other goals in Judaics, excellence vs. grading, excellence in relation to the panoply of goals in a school's mission/vision; families' perspectives on excellence; excellence as a component of a school's marketing and value proposition; excellence in relation to a particular aspect of a school's functions; drawing lessons about excellence from particular examples.

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 school leaders, lay and professional, and 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 by February 23.

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.) Each issue focuses on a theme of importance to practitioners of Jewish education. The journal publishes articles by a range of authors, including scholars, outside experts, and leading educators in the field of Jewish day schools. Articles provide guidance, information and inspiration to administrators, teachers and lay leaders in Jewish day schools worldwide.

The 29th Annual Conference will be held from June 9-11, 2015, at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, in New York. Held in collaboration with the Association for the Social Scientific Study of Jewry, the Conference will offer a unique opportunity to to engage with educational phenomena in all their manifestations, settings, and contexts, and to place our engagements with Jewish education in broader scholarly and social contexts, in an effort to continue challenging and advancing our field.

The conference will bring together researchers, practitioners, and policy makers in research-based conversations that will address contemporary issues, pressing concerns, and new opportunities in Jewish education and the communities in which it takes place. We are looking forward to panels, workshops and conversations that address more traditional domains like curriculum, teaching and learning, schools, synagogues, and camps, in addition to research on broader questions of policy, financing, leadership, popular culture, museums, journalism, politics, and social media.

The Conference will be held mid-week, in order to allow for our second annual Emerging Scholar Seminar. Organized in conjunction with Consortium for Applied Studies in Jewish Education (CASJE) and the Mandel Center for Studies in Jewish Education, the Seminar will be held on June 8-9, and will provide an opportunity for mentoring, research, workshopping and discussion between senior and emerging scholars in the field.

The conference will be co-chaired by Dr. Ari Y. Kelman (Stanford), who will coordinate the program and Dr. Evie Rotstein (HUC-JIR), who will oversee the arrangements.

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
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 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
Ivriyon@jtsa.edu.

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.
https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/7JG85SS 

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
