Jewish Portal of Teacher Education

Articles of the week

The Jewish Education Project has curated a collection of resources on the May 2021 Israeli-Palestinian crisis. The resources that we offer on the Portal are ones that we believe will directly benefit educators. This collection also offers broader resources to support your understanding of this complex topic. Our goal is to strike balance when offering conflicting pieces.
This special series of the Azrieli Papers highlights the ways in which Covid-19 prompted an examination of Jewish education, including practices and underlying philosophies. The essays in this and the following two volumes offer a view of the lessons we have learned in these uncertain times and the opportunities we have uncovered. Each essay begins with a discussion by educators and educational consumers “on the ground”—sharing their experiences and thoughts. These essays are paired with a companion article by an Azrieli or YU faculty member, offering their thoughts as well as providing research, readings and resources to expand on the topic.
