At Jerusalem U, we’re creating Jewish- and Israel-related content that younger people will watch. In 2017, we made a strategic decision to expand from our primary focus on feature-length films to also include YouTube. We wanted to offer another portal of entry to our audiences, and began experimenting with YouTube videos as a way of meeting young people in more places where they hang out.

Facebook Israel and The National Library of Israel are embarking on a joint project to mark the start of the school year: they will upload to the social media network more than 1,000 pictures of Israeli schoolchildren taken from the 1950s to the 1990s so that users can tag themselves and tell the story behind the photos.

In the fall of 2017, Echoes & Reflections, a partnership program of ADL, USC Shoah Foundation, and Yad Vashem, debuted its new website to further carry out its mission of supporting educators with dynamic classroom materials and professional development to effectively teach about the Holocaust. Since 2005, Echoes & Reflections has impacted more than 60,000 educators, reaching an estimated 6 million students across the United States. Over the past two years, as we have witnessed the unfortunate rise in antisemitism, the enhanced offerings of the Echoes & Reflections website have provided educators the Holocaust training and resources they need to empower their students to think critically about this important historical event and its impact on their lives today.

A revolution has occurred, but most people, it seems, have not noticed. I refer to the worldwide effort to digitalize the great medieval Jewish manuscript tradition. The result is a brave new world, in which these precious treasures of the Jewish past are now available to scholars, students, and the public at large. As far as I can tell, this major enterprise has not received the attention it deserves, while the use of these manuscripts has not yet been fully integrated into the teaching of Jewish Studies. I, for one, have become an evangelist for the cause, as reflected by the fact that during the past decade, more and more of my teaching, research, and lecturing has been devoted to these manuscripts.
