Israelis from across the Political and Religious Spectrum Join a National Conversation about the Tanakh, on the Website 929
Launched over Hanukkah, 929 is a $12 million Israeli initiative to turn the Tanakh into a national conversation. Drawing its name from the 929 chapters of the Hebrew Bible, the project aims to get hundreds of thousands of Israelis from all walks of life to complete the corpus over three-and-a-half years by covering five chapters a week. The hub of the enterprise is its state-of-the-art website, where readers can find commentary from a wide array of contributors, from celebrated secular authors like Etgar Keret and A.B. Yehoshua, to spiritual leaders like ultra-Orthodox former Chief Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau and progressive trailblazer Rabbi Tamar Elad-Appelbaum.

During these difficult times for Israel and the Jewish people, it is hard to say nothing, but even harder to know what to say. The Torah has 70 faces, many perspectives. Particular verses of the Bible may not be able to answer questions but they can offer comfort, solace and a place for personal reflection for those who turn to it in times of need. For this reason, TABS has asked a number of rabbis, scholars, and Jewish leaders what verse they might turn to when dealing with the current crisis.

Book Review: Jon A. Levisohn and Susan P. Fendrick, Editors, Turn It and Turn It Again: Studies in the Teaching and Learning of Classical Texts
In Turn It and Turn It Again: Studies in the Teaching and Learning of Classical Jewish Texts, edited and published in 2013 by Jon A. Levisohn and Susan P. Fendrick, we have a volume that certainly lives up to its name. The volume provides a rich and diverse range of viewpoints on and orientations to the teaching and learning of Jewish texts, such that I feel remiss only reading it once. That the authors invoke the famous quote of Ben Bag Bag from Pirkei Avot 5:22 seems especially appropriate in the context of Levisohn and Fendrick’s anthology, given its similarity with Pirkei Avot’s ability to blend both pedagogic and ideological purposes.

Practitioner research was conducted on Grade 10 students’ arts-based projects of Numbers Chapter 12 in order to assess the value of using the arts in Jewish secondary schools. Based on interview transcripts, projects, and written statements, three themes emerged that demonstrated why teachers should use the arts in their classes. The arts provided students the opportunity to act as commentators, form personal connections to the text, and meet educational and curricular goals like memory retention and enhanced group skills. The following article provides a case study of two projects that used the same storyline in order to provide evidence for the importance of using the arts in Jewish education.
