The author, who entered the Israeli education system as an idealistic recruit and left it after two years of swimming unaided in the 'shark pool', proposes an idea which he feels will help lower the high attrition rate for new teachers entering the Israeli education system. He proposes implementing a three year apprenticeship system to allow new teachers to serve as teaching assistants for the first three years, gradually taking individual classes first with and later without supervision. He sees this idea as superior even to the mentorship programs presently used by some schools.

“Either a Hevruta Partner or Death”: A Critical View on the Interpersonal Dimensions of Hevruta Learning
How might one perceive the role of his or her hevruta partner in the hevruta learning relationship? Drawing on recent developments in the scholarship of rabbinics, this article offers an interpretation of a Talmudic legend that discusses three forms of interpersonal relationships in hevruta learning. Rather than considering hevruta learning as a formal setting meant to serve the learner's own learning, this interpretation offers a dialogic view of hevruta learning in which the learner carries a responsibility for the learning of his or her hevruta partner as well. The article concludes by suggesting further considerations of the interpretation of Talmudic legends as a resource for Jewish education and of hevruta learning as a locus for moral education.
