Creating 21st Century Readers in Jewish Education
with Ziva R. Hassenfeld, Ph.D.

Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Assistant Professor of Jewish Education
Brandeis University

May 19, 7:00 pm ET Online

Jewish studies is at a crossroads. Tasked with enormous and competing responsibilities including textual literacy, Jewish literacy, decoding skills, reading skills, language skills, cultural transmission, identity development, and spiritual inspiration, the Jewish studies teacher faces a near impossible challenge. The laundry list of competing outcomes often results in hodgepodge curricula with constant moving targets. In response, this talk offers a new focused answer to the goal of Jewish studies in Jewish day schools: inducting students into a Jewish literate practice. I will offer a new vision for what Jewish studies classes could be and how they can prepare students for the reading demands of the 21st century.
