Exposing Young Children to Hebrew as a Second Language and to the Jewish Culture - A MOFET International Webinar
The number of children who are raised with two or more languages has increased worldwide. While Hebrew is the first language for many people living in Israel, it constitutes a second or a foreign language for Jews who live in the Diaspora. In this MOFET International webinar in Hebrew to be held on January 07, 2016 at 10 pm IST, Dr. Efrat Harel will focus on exposing young children to Hebrew as a second or third language, and will consist of three parts: (1) Theories of second-language acquisition among adults as compared to children will be introduced as the framework; (2) Authentic ways of teaching young children a second or a foreign language, focusing on the integration of games, will be discussed; and (3) The Hebrew language and some of the challenges that may be experienced by Hebrew teachers in the Diaspora will be examined.

Today it is clear from research that vocabulary is the most important component of language knowledge. In addition, it has been shown that in second-language courses vocabulary cannot be acquired solely through incidental learning from reading or listening: it needs to be deliberately taught in the classroom. In this talk in Hebrew, on Tuesday, Septemeber 1, 2015 at 22:00 Israel time, Prof. Penny Ur will present a number of practical principles underlying effective vocabulary teaching, with some examples of classroom procedures based on them. These will cover both presentation of new items and further review with the aim of ensuring long-term retention.

To understand how day schools are measuring up to their potential as incubators of Jewish commitment, a team of researchers undertook to visit some 19 schools and learn first-hand how they enact their Jewish mission. The eight-member team – consisting almost entirely of former day school heads who now work in other arenas in the field of Jewish education – spent time observing schools between the spring of 2012 and the end of the 2012-13 school year. Usually in teams of two, the observers focused their attention on the ways day schools enact their self-defined Jewish mission. The Case Study team consisted of Michael Berger, Josh Elkin, Cheryl Finkel, Reuven Greenvald, Pearl Mattenson, Alex Pomson, Jack Wertheimer and Tali Zelkowicz.
