Lookstein Center Seminar in NYC - Academic Bible Study and the Orthodox Student

A four-day seminar (June 19-22, 2017)

High school Jewish studies teachers and Jewish campus professionals often face questions such as:
My literature professor says that the Torah was written by many authors. Is that true?
Why is there no archaeological evidence for the Exodus?
Hammurabis code pre-dates the giving of the Torah and is very similar. Did Moshe copy from Hammurabi?
Do I have to believe that everything in the Torah is historically accurate?

These, and others questions emerging from the exposure to academic Bible study, often pose deep religious challenges for the intelligent, thinking Orthodox student.

The Lookstein Center is pleased to announce a four-day intensive seminar designed to equip Jewish educators with knowledge, research, and resources to address the topic of academic Bible study. Participants will be rewarded with a rich program of text study, shiurim, and workshops designed specifically for Jewish educators. This fully funded program will be held at the Ramaz school in NYC, immediately prior to the popular YCT Yemei Iyun in Tanach and Jewish Thought. The program is led by Rabbi Dr. Joshua Berman (Academic Director) and Rabbi Dr. Zvi Grumet (Educational Director).

Participation will be limited to 20 educators.

Applications for the program are available at: www.lookstein.org/leadership/bibleseminar1.docx.

Application deadline: Jan 15, 2017.

For questions please contact biblearn@lookstein.org

Rabbi Dr. Joshua Berman is a professor of Tanakh at Bar-Ilan University and the author of two books on the Torah by Oxford University Press. He learned in Yeshivat Har-Etzion and has semikhah from the Israeli Chief Rabbinate.

Rabbi Dr. Zvi Grumet is a senior staff member at The Lookstein Center and a Tanakh teacher. He has semikhah from Yeshiva University and is the author of two books on the Torah.

Announcing New Project: Daily Torah Tweets. 30 seconds/day


Dear Friends,

This Sunday I'm planning on embarking on what for me is an ambitious project and in which I would like to invite you to join me.

It involves a minimal amount of daily study (between 20 to 30 seconds daily) of some of our most important textual sources. I plan and hope to write a single tweet (140 characters or less) about each source, each day.

The sources are as follows:

Parsha - The weekly reading of the Torah, completed in one year. Each day will give a highlight or summary from one of the seven Aliyot.

Mishna - The initial redaction of the Oral Law. Will be keeping pace with the Mishna Yomi cycle which does 2 Mishnas per day and completes the entire corpus in around 6 years.

Daf Yomi - The famous 7.5 year cycle that covers the Babylonian Talmud.

Rambam - Maimonides' legal code. At the pace of one chapter a day, completes the cycle in around 3 years.

Halacha - Study of the Shulchan Aruch, Orach Chayim, the authoritative Code of Jewish Law. Complete cycle in around 4.5 years.

Now, it is particularly challenging to squeeze words of Torah into one short sentence, but we'll give it a shot. This is by no means authoritative; it is certainly the opposite of comprehensive, will most likely be cryptic and will barely be coherent. It is meant to pique interest and curiosity and encourage those who want to know more to go to the original source.

Below is a sample of what I have planned:

Sunday
18-Dec-16
8 Kislev 5777
#ParshaYomi #Vayeshev 1: 17 yr-old Joseph has dreams foretelling leadership. It sets his brothers against him.
#MishnaYomi #MaaserSheni 4:12 Man tells son tithe is in one corner and finds it in another, it's not considered consecrated tithe.
#DafYomi #BavaMetzia 83: Workers are hired as per local customs: starting and finishing hour, meals.
#RambamYomi #NizkeiMamon 11:9 An ox that killed a man and was sentenced to death, any sale, gift or transfer of ox ownership is invalid.
#HalachaYomi OC 90:6 One should not pray in a ruined building, for fear that it may fall on him and because of harmful entities.

It will be available on Twitter. My id there is @bentzis

For those interested that prefer one daily email with the five different tweets, I will set up a separate email list. Just reply with SUBSCRIBE.

Thanks and Shabbat Shalom!

Internet Resource: USHMM launches primary source teaching tool

 

The Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has recently released a new digital tool, Experiencing History: Jewish Perspectives on the Holocaust, aimed to facilitate your teaching. You can find it at www.experiencinghistory.com

Experiencing History is aimed at college-and university level instructors who teach Holocaust-related courses, broadly defined. It features online collections of carefully selected Jewish primary sources, from diaries, letters and newspaper articles to photography, moving image and sound. The sources are grouped into thematic collections that allow for easy classroom integration. Each source is introduced and annotated by a Holocaust scholar, in order to provide enough historical context for a productive in-class discussion or an assignment. While context and annotation provide important background, the tool is flexible enough to allow for a number of different educational, disciplinary, methodological and other approaches, so you can use it for courses at different levels and in different disciplines.

Both instructors and students can create individual accounts, save contextualized items to their personal dashboards, search items using a search interface or by tag, and more. In addition, instructors can create a class and save specific items for their students to view.

Today, the site comprises four collections: Holocaust Diaries, Post-Holocaust Testimony, Wartime Correspondence, and Artistic Responses to the Holocaust. By January, four additional collections of material will also be available--Displaced Persons in Postwar Europe, Jewish Community Documents, Wartime Jewish Press, and The Holocaust and the Moving Image--with additional material coming up on-line in 2017.

The site is completely free - www.experiencinghistory.com

Please feel free to forward this announcement to colleagues who you think might benefit from this tool in their teaching. Thank you, and please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

With best wishes,

Emil Kerenji

Announcing "The Parsha Discussion"

I am excited to launch "The Parsha Discussion," a new project that I am inaugurating for 5777. It is a weekly post that is designed to stimulate a discussion around the Shabbat table, especially with teenagers, based around the parsha.

See the posts and sign up at http://www.alexisrael.org/parshadiscussion 

Let me explain how this project was born.

A past-student contacted me and asked me to learn with him when he was visiting Israel. He wanted to study Parshat Hashavua with me. I was surprised. Why come half way around the world to study parsha; there is so much already on the internet!

He explained: "I love to discuss the parsha at the Shabbat Table. When my kids were young, we did a parsha quiz. Y'know - How many animals entered the Ark? How many sons did Noah have? For how many days did it rain? But now, my kids are 8 and 12; they don't want these informational questions. They find them childish. And I don't know how to raise discussions which are informed and relevant to them."

I find that many of my friends, who have learned in yeshiva, sometimes don't have the time, or even lack the confidence to engage the young-adults and other adults around their tables in significant Torah discussions.

I will share a post every Thursday in preparation for Shabbat which will be short, text-based, and will include questions for discussion. Join me on this exciting venture!

Bivracha,
Alex Israel

The Beautiful Project


We are living in a moment when our youth need us more than ever. Todays youth are deeply affected by social media, by peer pressure, by cultural expectations telling them that women need to look a certain way and men need to treat them a certain way - and these behaviors do not honor our young women or our young men. We want to give them something different. 

Naomi Katz, author of Beautiful: Being an Empowered Young Woman, is embarking on a tour across the US to raise awareness about her work and is available for workshops and sessions with your students.

Naomi is the founder of the Beautiful Project, a movement dedicated to cultivating self-confidence in young people, particularly women and girls. Her programs focus on empowering youth to take action, to understand that we are the builders of our culture and that we drive the changes that we wish to see. We begin with ourselves and that echoes into our communities. Through awareness of the impact of media and our understanding of equality, Naomi offers participants practical strategies to help navigate the myriad influences young people face today.

Naomi will be in the United States in late January/early February 2017.

Naomi Katz facilitates programs for parents, mentors, educators and young people. For more information about workshops, click here. Please visit our testimonials page to read responses to our programs, and our Youtube channel to hear Naomi speak. Contact her through her website.

Text comes alive at Pardes!

Watch our new video, narrated by Leah Rosenthal, which brings to life a passage of Talmud (moed katan 16b) through a dynamic havruta between two students. Does Torah belong equally in both domains? What tensions exist between them? How do they complement each other? We hope to provoke and create debate and continue the conversation among our students, teachers, alumni and the wider Jewish world. Continue the conversation on our Facebook page or at www.pardes.org.il/livingtext.

In addition, we have a new 3-part series coming up with Judy Klitsner on Monday evenings Jan 30Feb 6 & 13 at 7:30 pm. Absolute Power Corrupts Incrementally: Biblical Monarchs and the Breakdown of Moral, Psychological and Sexual Boundaries. Click here for more information.
