Dear subscriber, 

We are delighted to be sending you another issue of The Jewish Portal of Teacher Education resource list.

These are truly challenging times. The last few months of global pandemic have presented the world with frightening scenarios, forcing us to adopt previously unimaginable changes in our private, professional and community way of life. Jewish communities and institutions have been attempting to quickly adapt to these changes and searching for ways of providing care and essential services to their members. Jewish educators have been scrambling to reach out to students to continue to provide them with emotional and spiritual support. The pandemic has not yet been overcome and will likely be with us for some time.

We present in this newsletter a collection of resources which could help Jewish educators chart their course for the near future as well as for the long term.

We also include information items with learning resources for Yom Yerushalayim and the Festival of Shavuot as well as research findings and professional development opportunities.

MOFET International invites you to sign up for its online summer course in Teaching Hebrew as a Second Language. to be held between July 1 – August 31, 2020. Those registered in the complete Hebrew teaching program may also enroll for this elective course. We also invite you to participate in the annual summer conference of MOFET’s International Forum of Hebrew Teachers to be held by Zoom on Thursday July 16, 2020.

Wishing you health and peace of mind,

Reuven Werber,

The MOFET Portal Team.
