STAJE Summer Seminar for Teachers in Jewish Schools

 

Hiding and Rescue in the Holocaust
July 6 to 8, 2015

The Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust invites Jewish school educators to apply to participate in our three-day summer seminar, Hiding and Rescue in the Holocaust. The seminar is part of the Museum’s Shoah Teaching Alternatives in Jewish Education (STAJE) programs, and will take place at the Museum beginningMonday, July 6 through Wednesday, July 8, 2015, from 10:00 A.M. to 4:45 P.M.

As the horrors of the Holocaust began to unfold, Jews across Europe sought different ways to survive. While many hoped to wait out the storm, others tried to flee overseas or to the Soviet Union. Still others tried to hide. While there were different ways of concealing oneself, each way required the help of others, deception, and danger. Join outstanding scholars and educators Samuel Kassow, Debórah Dwork, Suzanne Vromen, Yitzchak Mais and others as we explore how Jews hid and through hiding were rescued throughout Europe during the Holocaust. Learn about the resourcefulness with which Jews and their non-Jewish rescuers dealt with the challenges they faced. Discover how they were able to stay alive by hiding during the war and how some continued to stay hidden afterward.

The STAJE Summer Seminar is free, but admission is by application.

To obtain an application, please email Dr. Paul Radensky, Manager of Education Programs, at pradensky@mjhnyc.org.
Completed applications are due by June 5, 2015.

If you have questions, please contact Dr. Radensky by email at pradensky@mjhnyc.org or by telephone at 646.437.4310.

A light lunch will be provided (dietary laws observed) each day of the seminar. A portion of public transportation or parking will be reimbursed for participating teachers.

The Museum is located at 36 Battery Place in Lower Manhattan and is a convenient walk from the 1, 4/5, and R trains. Parking is available within a few blocks of the Museum. For more detailed directions, please visit our website. 

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.

April 26, 2015 from 12:30 P.M. to 5:15 P.M.

Holland occupies a large role in the memory of the Holocaust. As the country that sheltered Anne Frank and other hidden Jews, it has been seen as being more righteous than other European countries. In fact, Holland had a vigorous anti-Semitic movement, a member of which turned the Frank family in. Join us at the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust, as we explore the paradoxical history of Holland in the Holocaust with leading scholars Gerhard Weinberg (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill), Dienke Hondius (VU University, Amsterdam and the Anne Frank House), Jeffrey Shandler (Rutgers University) and survivor, Dr. Alfred Munzer. We look forward to what should be a fascinating seminar.

The program is free of charge, however space is limited and advance registration is required.

Hebrew classroom magazines from Israel for Jewish Day Schools

Teaching Diaspora day school students spoken Hebrew, and ensuring that they leave elementary school with a deep connection to the language as well as a level of mastery, has long been a challenge for educators in day schools outside of Israel. 

 

Current educational research often speaks to the need to make learning relevant to our students. In order to ensure that our children and students connect to the Hebrew language, and that they view its acquisition as intrinsically motivating, we must bridge the gaps that exist between instruction and motivation.

 

Ezbeoni Publishing, a beloved Israeli children's magazine publisher, has adapted their Israeli children's magazines to meet the needs of Diaspora students. The magazines are designed for students learning Hebrew outside of Israel, in day schools, supplemental schools, or other institutions and are designed to reach across denominations. The Diaspora Hebrew classroom magazines currently available are most suitable for kindergarten through the fifth grade. 

 

The Hebrew classroom magazines contain content related to Israeli culture and daily life, history, famous Israeli personalities, geography and culture, current events, Israeli innovations, and so much more. Stories, articles, and activities and puzzles are contained within each edition, and each edition  revolves around a specific theme. 

 

Information on these magazines can be obtained by visiting the magazine's website, www.IvritPublications.com or by emailing info@IvritPublications.com. Special pricing is available for orders reserved by May 1, 2015.

Zvi Yehuda Kook(zt”l), R. Binyamin Lau, R. Mosheh Lichtenstein, R. David Milston, R. Yitzhak Nissim(zt”l), R. Shlomo Riskin, R. Jonathan Sacks, R. Herschel Schachter, R. JJ Schacter, R. Joseph B. Soloveitchik(zt”l), R. Moshe Taragin, R. Berel Wein, Dr. Yael Ziegler, and more.

“The Koren Yom Ha’Atzmaut Mahzor is both an enhanced mahzor and an inspiring educational resource in one. Now all English-speaking Jewry will be able to enrich their connection to Israel emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually,” says Koren publisher Matthew Miller. 

The Koren Yom Ha’Atmaut Mahzor is being released before Passover, the festival that celebrates redemption and the birth of the Jewish nation. “On Pesah and Shavuot, we celebrate our original, physical redemption and spiritual destiny in Biblical times. On Yom Ha’Atzmaut and Yom Yerushalayim, we celebrate these very same sentiments in modern times,” says Rav Doron Perez, Director-General of World Mizrachi. “We thank our donors for supporting this landmark publication.

Torah iTextbook Update

The Torah iTextbook Project’s library of 20 sugyot was officially unveiled at the 2015 National Jewish Day School conference just a few weeks ago. Many of the educators who visited our spot at the conference “playground” were extremely positive about the impact that this library could make on their gemara curriculum and some have already begun the process of subscribing to the library for the next school year. 

We have also updated our website which now includes a free downloadable sample sugyah (Shliach L’Dvar Aveirah), a downloadable brochure explaining the educational goals and objectives of the material and a page which includes information on how your school can subscribe to the project for the 2015-16 school year. 

In addition we have partnered with Gemara Berura and have begun the process of uploading our materials onto their online system. This partnership will allow us to provide our content to Gemara Berura schools as well as to non-Gemara Berura schools who do not have access to iPads or Apple computers. 

For more information please visit www.HDSTIP.org.

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

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.

Liturgy and Prayer Conference in New York City

The Mordecai M. Kaplan Center for Jewish Peoplehood and Mechon Hadar invite you to attend a conference on the future of liturgy and prayer (part 1 -- the words, not the music). The conference is designed to appeal both to scholars and other professionals and to interested laypeople. 

The conference will be held on Sunday, May 17, 2015, at Congregation Rodeph Sholom, 7 West 83rd Street (just west of Central Park). The day will consist largely of a series of panel discussions, with substantial time for audience interaction, as well as several text study and other break-out sessions in between and a keynote talk by Rabbi Dr. Ruth Langer. Among the topics will be poetry and liturgy, prayer as a prod to social justice work, liturgical creativity within halakhic boundaries, the impact of new digital media on liturgy, and theology and prayer -- and much more. A kosher box lunch will be provided. The presenting co-sponsors of the conference are the Kaplan Center and Mechon Hadar. Several congregations, of various denominations, will be co-sponsors as well. 

At the conference we will be engaging in a variety of trans-stream conversations with compilers of liturgy and other experts from the Reconstructionist, Reform, Conservative, Orthodox, Renewal and Humanistic streams, from both North America and Israel. Among the confirmed presenters are Rabbi Rolando Matalon, Rabbi Jill Jacobs, Rabbi Dr. Shai Held, Rabbi Dr. Ethan Tucker, Rabbi Dr. Ruth Langer, Ms. Catherine Madsen, Rabbi Ed Feld, Rabbi Jan Uhrbach, Rabbi Dr. Daniel Sperber, Rabbi Reena Spicehandler, Rabbi Dr. Peter Knobel, Rabbi Dr. Rachel Sabath Beit-Halachmi, Rabbi Michael Strassfeld, Dr. Marcia Falk and Dr. Alicia Ostriker. 

The conference is free of charge and open to the public. However, advance registration is important and will soon be available online.

For more information about the conference, please contact Dan Cedarbaum at dan@kaplancenter.org or at 847-492-5200.

Unfortunately, in large part because of Columbia University's graduation exercises, hotel rooms on the Upper West Side during this period are scarce. If you are coming in from outside New York, we urge you to make your travel and lodging plans as soon as possible. If our presenters do not take all of the rooms in our block at a nearby hotel, we will make them available to others. We may also be able to arrange for home hospitality, but on a very limited basis. Again, please contact Dan Cedarbaum for more information about accommodations. 

We will soon be preparing flyers for the conference, as well as a web page for registration that will contain more information, particularly about the panels. Please publicize the conference as broadly as you can.

We hope to see many of you in Manhattan in May.

The Atid Day School Innovation Challenge Hackathon

The Atid Day School Innovation Challenge, a joint initiative of PresenTense Group and The Jewish Education Project with the support of UJA-Federation of New York, is hosting a Hackathon to highlight and encourage innovation in Jewish day schools. The Hackathon, which will be held at Impact Hub on Monday, May 18th, will convene day school educators, technology experts and high school students for a day of prototyping and testing innovative solutions to educational challenges using the principles of Design Thinking.

The day-long event will focus on a core question: How might we use technology to enhance Jewish day school education? Participants will pitch ideas and form diverse teams around shared interests. With guidance from an experienced Hackathon facilitator and support from staff and mentors, the teams will spend the day building, testing and adjusting their solutions. The Hackathon will close with prototype demonstrations by representatives from each team. The top three teams, selected by a participant vote, will receive a cash prize that empowers them to continue building their prototypes. The event will also honor the recipients of the Atid Award, a group of extraordinary teachers whose innovative classroom ideas won a video contest last fall.

“Hackathons combine two powerful elements: a fast-paced, high-energy environment, and open, knowledgeable participants who are willing to take the risk to create fast, cheap prototypes that envision a different reality,” says Naomi Korb Weiss, CEO of PresenTense. “Dedicating a day to thinking differently about Jewish day school education introduces the opportunity to create lasting impact on the future of our community.”

Registration for the Hackathon is now open and seeking participants from diverse fields. Day school educators will find technical expertise, resources, and the time to develop a bright idea. Developers, designers, and other tech professionals will have the unique opportunity to use their skills in the service of Jewish education. Student volunteers will serve as thought partners and test users, enabling teams to iterate on their prototypes to create student-centered solutions. Computer science graduate students will build their portfolios through meaningful, live practice.

"The Revival of the Menorah" - Jewish Identification Educational Initiative

The Harizi Foundation (NGO association) has produced: "Revival of the Menorah – In the Footsteps of a Menorah". It is now available to schools in Israel and the Diaspora. 

The program, "The Revival of the Menorah" is being implemented in many Israeli schools, secular, religious and ultra-orthodox, with 4,000 students participating last year. This year, 30,000 students are participating.

Our website http://www.edu-menora.com includes lesson plans (translated into English), photos, videos, and other learning aids. The site is regularly updated with educational materials provided by schools that are participating in the program.

The principal concept is to study:

1. The artwork, "The Menorah and Jerusalem - From its Destruction through Historical Events to its Revival" (see appendix).
It is a Jewish/Zionist visual and educational learning aid, based on the words of the Hebrew prophets. It is both simple to understand and to implement. The central idea is a presentation of the Menorah being taken into captivity in Rome (as depicted in the Arch of Titus) and the chain of historical events that follow: including the Holocaust, and the rebuilding of present-day Jerusalem following the establishment of Israel and the reunification of Jerusalem in the Six Day War.

2. The Menorah, a symbol of humiliation and destruction, becoming a symbol of an independent Jewish state in Israel after 2,000 years of exile and was internationally recognized as a symbol of Jewish renewal in Israel and the Diaspora. 

3. The artwork is divided into 3 parts: 
a. The base - the Menorah and Jerusalem during its destruction. 
b. The middle - the chain of events that preceded the establishment of the State.
c. The top - the Menorah with its branches representing present-day Jerusalem: well-established, flourishing, a symbol of self-governance, the realization of the dream of previous generations and more.

The goals of the program is to:
a. Instill and impart knowledge of Judaism, Zionism and Jewish History using active visual learning, both at home and in the classroom, and with the aid of games.
b. Become familiar with historical events of the Jewish people.
c. Make connections between Judaism before the destruction of the Temple and contemporary Jewry.
d. Strengthen the relationship between the Diaspora Jews to Jerusalem, as the national and religious capital of the Jewish people.
e. Learn about the different roles of democratic government institutions and civil rights in Israel.
f. Emphasize different eras of Jewish history: Jewish rule over Israel, the exile and return of the Jewish people.
g. Absorb 2,000 years of history, in one colorful, historically accurate and demonstrative image.

Additionally, family members can create and publicize new topics. There will also be a quiz with prizes and the opportunity to meet unique individuals associated with Jerusalem.

Implementation:
a. One initial session in which the teachers receive training on the various images in the art work. Or by using the website http://www.edu-menora.com. Or by Skype.
b. Schools will receive a large copy of the artwork (75 by 100 cm) to be displayed in the entrance or a central position of the school.
c. Students will receive their own colorful copy (20 by 30 cm).
d. Students will receive a game that includes dozens of color photographs of Jewish concepts.
e. There is an additional game for group work like Monopoly.

This project is based on an existing curriculum that is currently used in many schools.

The project is distributed by The Harizi Foundation, which is funded by private institutional donors who care about Judaism, the future redemption and building of the land of Israel and who consider the accessibility of these subjects to the younger generation as a national and personal mission. The close shipment is paid by the Goldshmidt Family Fund from New York. Some of the donors prefer to remain anonymous.

The materials are available free of charge for 50 schools in the Diaspora.
The program is a year-round program. 
We hope that you join this initiative.

Website: Hebrew - http://www.edu-menora.com/ English -http://www.edu-menora.com/en/ 

We will be happy to answer any questions at hfund2000@gmail.com 

Sincerely,
Yakov Rosenwasser

School participation in a National Science Foundation study

I am fortunate to be part of a team at Teachers College and several other institutions who are putting in a proposal that could help schools in the US and around the world to provide better educational opportunities to children from diverse backgrounds. 

If we are funded, we would be working with universities here in the US and also in Mexico to improve an educational software that provides individualized mathematics instruction to students. Developed by Carnegie Mellon, the software has already been effectively used to teach middle-school math concepts, providing spaced practice based on students individual performance and freeing teachers to provide further individualized instruction that matches the pace of each student.

At this point, we are looking for schools who might be interested in participating in this research. We don't need any commitments until we know for sure that we'd be funded, but we would like to start talking to schools before that (hopefully!) happens since the process for arranging this kind of research with schools and school districts can often take quite a while.

If you are a teacher or administrator at a school that might be interested (or if you know someone who is), please feel free to contact me at my Teachers College address - jo2424@tc.columbia.edu. We'd really like to hear from you!

Thanks everybody!

Global Tikkun Leil Shavuot in memory of Rabbi Aharon Lichtenstein zt”l

To our dear alumni, friends, distinguished rabbis and teachers of Torah across the world,

We are all mourning the passing of Moreinu veRabbeinu Harav Aharon Lichtenstein zt"l, who taught us the ways of Torah and the ways of life. Rav Lichtenstein was taken from us during the days of Sefirat HaOmer, the period during which we prepare ourselves for receiving the Torah. More than ever before, this year we feel the urgent need to fortify ourselves with his teachings and his legacy, in a united fashion.
Rav Lichtenstein’s students especially remember his presence at the Shavuot night mishmar, culminating with the excited pre-dawn singing of Beron yachad kokhevei boker. This great night, which is quickly approaching, is an opportunity for us all to offer tribute to Rav Lichtenstein’s memory and to identify ourselves as his followers, each person in his own locality and in his communal or organizational framework.

We appeal to you to take part in a global Tikkun Leil Shavuot that we have initiated in memory of Moreinu Harav Lichtenstein zt”l. In the framework of this initiative, each participant will dedicate divrei Torah, whether a talk, a class, or a private Torah study session, in memory of Rav Lichtenstein, and thereby spread the teachings of Torah and Yir’at Shamayim to which Rav Lichtenstein dedicated himself his entire life.

In connection with this project, we wish to list the names of the communities, shuls, schools and organizations who undertake this initiative, in the media and in our promotional materials, to demonstrate the breadth and scope of the Torah and impact of Rav Lichtenstein. This initiative will focus on communities in North America, the UK, South Africa, Australia and anywhere else where there are either Har Etzion rabbis or other friends of the Yeshiva who appreciate the influence Rav Lichtenstein has had on so many people.
IN ORDER TO LIST YOUR COMMUNITY, SHUL, SCHOOL OR ORGANIZATION, PLEASE REGISTER BY CLICKING HERE BY MAY 18TH.

Please help spread this initiative and forward to communal and educational leaders you know of, who might not have received this email, so they can sign up and participate.

May we merit to continue the blessed legacy of Harav Lichtenstein zt"l, for many years to come.

With warm regards, Yeshivat Har Etzion

Sefaria translation contest for educators

For the next month, Sefaria will be running weekly translation contests exclusively for educators.

Why you? We know that many of you have a great deal of experience translating sources into English, and our community of learners seeks high-quality translations. This initiative is part of a broader effort to identify pieces of text that members in our community need translated. The translations you add to Sefaria may be new ones or ones that are hiding on your hard drive and in your Google docs!

How it works: 

Each week we will feature a group of texts, with the goal of having them all translated by the end of the week. We will select the texts based on user requests and text added to source sheets without an available translation. After scanning our database of source sheets, there are already more than 5,000 segments of text that need to be translated. For every source you translate (assuming the translation is judged to be accurate by our team), you will be entered in the weekly raffle to win a $75 Amazon gift card.

Add your voice to Sefaria's library and help us create more translations for our community of learners! 
http://www.sefaria.org/translation-requests 

Register for Free Virtual Trainings 

Director of Education Sara Wolkenfeld will lead hour-long virtual training sessions that are open to all educators in April and May. To better target your needs and interests, three types of trainings will be offered: Beginners, Classroom Teachers, and Synagogue and Community-Based Learning. Read more and sign up to learn how to leverage Sefaria for your needs.

Mummies and Masterpieces' "Healing Paris" fundraiser

Mummies and Masterpieces is extremely proud to share the following information regarding the recent launch of our national "Healing Paris" fundraiser. Through the sale of beautiful, hand-made greeting cards, we are raising funds in order to create, send and implement art therapy kits with the Jewish community of Paris. 

The art therapy kits were developed for children by educators, artists, therapists, psychiatrists and psychologists. They include bubble activities to teach controlled breathing and relaxation, animal puppets for facilitating discussions about feeling strong and how to construct our own feelings of safety, and art supplies for enabling creative expression through art. 

The news might have fallen to the back pages of the newspapers, but the trauma lingers for years thereafter.

With Yom Hashoah coming up, why not take on this fundraiser in order to help Jewish children recover emotionally from the trauma of the Hyper Cacher and Charlie Hebdo terrorist attacks? 

Healing Paris is available to US non-profit organizations, including synagogues, Jewish day schools, Jewish organizations, Hebrew schools, etc. 

The art therapy kits are created by Israeli staff for an organization called Artists4Israel, so this fundraiser also supports Israeli therapists and educators. This is a perfect way to engage students and families in a Chesed activity that is connected with Yom Hashoah and also supports Israel. 

Fundraiser website: www.healingparis.com

Fundraiser Facebook page: www.facebook.com/healingparisfundraiser

Wishing everyone a Chag Kasher Vesamayach,

500 Years to the Opening of the Ghetto of Venice – March 2016

**SAVE THE DATE 29 MARCH 2016**
