A comprehensive program called Lehavin U’Lehaskil (To Understand and Discern) has been developed to help students gain a mastery of the Hebrew Tanach text. It focuses on providing teachers a systematic approach to teach our students how to learn Tanach independently in the original Hebrew text. It empowers children by teaching them the skills needed to become confident, independent learners of Tanach, through decoding and translating words, phrases and verses from the Biblical text. This curriculum provides standards and assessments, and a clear, organized, systematic approach to teach the children skills, high frequency words and sharashim (verb roots). Workbooks, Teacher Editions, digital versions, and various manipulatives are used to slowly teach – step by step – all the skills needed so that all children – on any level – can achieve mastery of the language of Tanach.

Educators Can Access Resources on Modern Jewish Culture on a New Website - The Great Jewish Books Teacher Resources
Educators interested in teaching about modern Jewish literature and culture can access multimedia teaching materials, free of charge, on a new website, The Great Jewish Books Teacher Resources, a project of the Yiddish Book Center, in Amherst, Massachusetts. The website is home to a growing collection of resource kits focused on various aspects of modern Jewish culture, designed for use by secondary, college, and adult-education teachers. One kit, for instance, considers how Jews were represented onscreen in the early days of cinema, while another explores the cheder, the first educational experience for young boys in the shtetls of Eastern Europe. Others look at specific works of literature, from Isaac Bashevis Singer’s famed story “Gimpel the Fool” to Sholem Aleichem’s beloved Tevye the Dairyman character (the basis for Fiddler on the Roof). More kits will be added in the coming months.

At NewCAJE 7 in Naperville, Illinois, two workshop blocks were devoted to the teaching of the Tishrei holidays with more of an emphasis on Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur than on Sukkot. The calendar often gives educators an opportunity to teach Sukkot during the holiday, if not before it, but the High Holidays often are not taught or taught sparsely, and usually not systematically. This year, we are most fortunate that the High Holidays come much later in the fall — beginning as they do at the very beginning of October. NewCAJE wants to make available to you all of the workshops from the two workshop blocks and their content. The presenters were asked to write up their workshops so that someone who did not attend their session also could benefit from them. They were asked to include full stories, links to music, etc., so that everything here would be available to you and easy to access for your teaching.
