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.

Sefaria partnership initiative

Sefaria is pleased to announce our partnership initiative for the 2015-2016 academic year. We plan to assemble a small cohort of innovative educators, representing six different institutions, who wish to optimize their use of technology to create a richer educational experience in the Jewish studies classroom. 

Our partner educators will benefit from on-demand tech support from our team of engineers, as well as curricular assistance from our director of education. Sefaria is open to the possibility of building new features or adding texts to support ideas and enable educators to deepen their educational impact. In addition, Sefaria will offer three seminars over the course of the academic year. These seminars are designed to help educators think more broadly and more creatively about what it means to harness the power of technology in the service of education. They will be taught by professionals who work as engineers, tech entrepreneurs, or in other related fields.

Each educator will also meet regularly (1 to 2 times per month) with Sefaria’s director of education. This will allow both parties to exchange ideas about curriculum and learning activities, offer feedback about Sefaria, and brainstorm what features or apps might be on the horizon.

Educators who wish to participate must be committed to using Sefaria in a sustained way throughout the year. This could mean using Sefaria in the classroom, for a teacher’s own preparation, to create source sheets, or in any other way that she or he chooses. We are particularly interested in projects that are replicable, as we intend to publish case studies detailing these experimental initiatives.

For more details contact Sara Wolkenfeld at sara@sefaria.org. To access the application, click here. Applications will be accepted until July 3.

Apricot (justapricot.com) is a startup building a product designed to help teachers find out what their students know and what they don't.

As opposed to some other tools out there, Apricot does not believe that quick multiple choice quizzes are enough. Our questions are designed to elicit metacognitive answers from students and provide teachers with actionable insights.

We are looking for teachers interested in trying Apricot out in their classrooms for 3 weeks and then providing us with feedback on their experience with the product. 

Please email raffi@justapricot.com if you are interested in giving Apricot a try or have any questions. Please include "Apricot Ad" in the subject line.

CFP: Contemporary Jewry: Special Issue on Education


Contemporary Jewry is proud to announce a Call for Papers for a special issue focusing on education. Guest edited by Professor Ari Y Kelman (Stanford University), the special issue will feature articles and studies that take a social scientific approach to scholarship at the intersection of Jewish Studies and Education. As the only academic journal dedicated to publishing social scientific research about Jews, Contemporary Jewry invites proposals that engage with educational phenomena within broader social, cultural, religious, or political contexts. 

With this special issue, the Journal intends to publish work that is methodologically rigorous, conceptually fertile and that takes a broad approach to educational phenomena. Therefore, we welcome innovative scholarship on typically recognizable educational arenas including schools, heritage tourism, summer camps, youth groups, and so on. We also invite proposals that focus on less structured educational frameworks like museums, concerts, festivals, or other loci in which people learn to be Jewish. 

Contemporary Jewry serves as the single source for the social scientific consideration of world Jewry, its institutions, trends, character, and concerns. In its pages can be found work by leading scholars and important new researchers from North America, Europe, Australasia and Israel. While much relevant scholarship about Jewry is published in general social science journals, as well as more narrowly focused periodicals, no single scholarly journal focuses primarily on the social scientific study of Jewry.

Proposals should adhere to the journal’s submission guidelines http://www.springer.com/social+sciences/journal/12397
Submissions will proceed in a two-phase process. Abstracts (200-250 words) are due to professor Kelman by July 20. Those selected for submission would be expected to submit their manuscripts online bySeptember 1.

Please direct questions to Professor Ari Y Kelman, guest editor: aykelman@stanford.edu

For more information, please contact: aykelman@stanford.edu

RAVSAK: The Jewish Community Day School Network is seeking proposals for the fall issue of HaYidion. The issue theme is "Taking Measure." We seek articles that look at the question of assessment, evaluation, and measurement in all aspects of day schools, from evaluation of the school overall, to the full range of programs and stakeholders. We're especially looking for articles broaching current trends, successful practices and important challenges. Topics might include, but are not limited to: philosophical articles on the larger goals of assessment, what should be assessed and methods; questions of accountability; assessing culture; "data-driven"--uses, utility, and limits; broadening data streams; issues of standardized testing; portfolio assessment and other innovative, holistic practices, for students and teachers; assessing a Judaics program, teachers and students; assessment in tefillah; measuring skills, dispositions, content; measuring mentschlichkeit and SEL; best practices in teacher, board, admin evaluation; grade inflation; creating a shared faculty vision of assessment; getting students' assessment of school, teachers, classes; communicating assessments most effectively.

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 July 10; proposals requested by June 8.

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.)

Tefilah in Schools Symposium, Pardes Center for Jewish Educators

A first-of-a-kind symposium has opened today, July 8, 2015 focusing on tefilah in Jewish day schools. Aleinu Leshabe’ach, organized by the Pardes Center for Jewish Educators, has brought together 17 tefilah facilitators, across all grades, from Orthodox, Conservative and Community day schools, to spend six days exploring the challenges and new possibilities for tefilah education.

Participants will bring to the symposium best practices from the field, including classical texts, storytelling, music, film, use of the outdoors, meditation and student engagement. Guest presenters, who include expert thinkers and practitioners of prayer and spirituality in education, will address areas of stages of faith development, teaching prayer, cultivating spirituality and making organizational change in schools. 

The objectives of the symposium include clarifying educational goals, reflecting upon developmental priorities and crafting a variety of directions to address this most challenging aspect of the day school curriculum. 

Reflections from the symposium will be published the fall.

Pardes has been exploring the area of tefilah education in day schools over the last decade, specifically through the experiences of the more than 140 graduates of the Pardes Educators Program, which has been training teachers for Jewish day schools throughout North America since 2000.

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
