While many fine institutions exist to teach Torah to the next generation of Jewish leaders, rarely are these scholars taught how to teach the Torah that they have learned. Despite the lack of teacher training, Jewish professionals are simply expected to be able to teach Torah well.
We believe that a significant increase in the number of highly-trained Torah teachers has the capacity to radically change the Jewish community’s relationship to its spiritual and intellectual heritage. Through this teacher training bootcamp, we aim to significantly improve the quality of adult Jewish education in the North American Jewish community.
We owe a debt of gratitude to our friends at Kevah, who initiated and ran the Kevah Teaching Fellowship for many years, therein creating a cadre of highly-trained teachers of Torah. The Pardes Online Adult Educators Bootcamp was born out of a partnership with Kevah leaders Rabbi David Kasher and Dr. Julie Lieber.
