From Life to Curriculum and from Curriculum to Life: Re-thinking Our Paradigms on Jewish Studies at School – a MOFET Webinar in Spanish
This webinar, led in Spanish by Dr. Daniel Fainstein on Wednesday, January 15, 2014 - 7:00-8:30P.M. - Israel time. 12:00 – 13:30 EST – 5:00-6:30 GMT, will explore structural and conceptual issues regarding the status of Jewish Studies in Latin-American Jewish schools. Due to structural elements emanating from various sources, Jewish Studies have become fragmented and irrelevant subjects rather than a space for the exploration, experience, creativity, comprehensive study of Jewish identity and the dilemmas faced by young people today. We argue that if this issue were approached in a systematic manner without resorting to partial solutions, we could re-think a space for Jewish Studies and their function as framework for the construction of our students' 'cultural memory'.

At Gann Academy in Waltham, MA, I lead a Mussar-based character development program called Chanoch LaNa’ar (CLN), named after a verse in the Book of Proverbs which advocates for sophisticated child-centered education. We decided that, if we wanted this language, culture, and practice to impact our entire school, we needed to start with the adults in the building, especially the school’s senior leadership team.
