Teachers training program for Enhanced Jewish Culture Studies in the State Secular School System.
The course is being implemented in conjunction with a local college as a response to the need of the education system to train quality educators and teachers for the new program. The training combines relevant Jewish thought and knowledge, innovative learning methods, and community building skills.
Listening Learning Communities in State Religious Schools
B’Nachat – embodies the worldview that a complete Jewish life includes living according to the values of equality, human dignity, fairness, and compassion. This also means opposing discrimination, racism, harming
others, and inequality.
The “B’Nachat” program aims to be the catalyst that will bring about change in the religious school system. We aim to build a more inclusive and respectful language by developing listening learning communities in the religious state schools. We believe that the best way to start changing the school climate is by working in the “teachers’ room” in workshops that teach the skills needed to develop a culture of respectfully discussing sensitive issues. This process results in students being more inclusive and tolerant of others. The program is integrated at all levels of the school; administration, teachers, students, and parents so that a cultural change in the school will occur leading to greater respect and tolerance for diversity.
