Last year, Boston's Hebrew College hosted its first international Jewish Special Education Conference - GISHA (Good Ideas Supporting Hebrew Access). The event attracted nearly 200 Jewish educators, specialists, and researchers from the United States, Canada and Israel, who gathered together to learn from one another and to explore new and exciting ways to teach students with special needs how to read Hebrew.
For information related to the conference program and submissions for presentation, please contact either Dr. Sandy Miller-Jacobs, Professor of Special Education and Director of Special Education Programs or Dr. Scott Sokol, Bernard J. Korman Professor of Jewish Special Education.
