The Rimonim Professional Development Program aims to bring innovative pedagogical techniques developed at Herzog College in Israel to English-speaking Jewish educators around the world. The program is a year and a half long and includes an intensive summer semester in Israel, all expenses paid (COVID-permitting). This program is a joint project of Herzog College and the Israeli Ministry of Education and is subsidized by the Israeli government, so the cost for the entire program (including the Israel trip) is $750.
Courses include Tanach, Jewish history, Midrash, Hebrew as a Second Language and more. All the material is taught with a focus on how to bring these concepts into the classroom in an engaging and exciting way. Educators will be presented with technological tools and contemporary methodologies which can be used to teach any topic. These methods can be used immediately in the classroom to show students how ancient texts are relevant to their lives.
