Lookstein Center Seminar in NYC - Academic Bible Study and the Orthodox Student

High school Jewish studies teachers and Jewish campus professionals often face questions such as:
пїЅ My literature professor says that the Torah was written by many authors. Is that true?
пїЅ Why is there no archaeological evidence for the Exodus?
пїЅ HammurabiпїЅs code pre-dates the giving of the Torah and is very similar. Did Moshe copy from Hammurabi?
пїЅ Do I have to believe that everything in the Torah is historically accurate?

These, and others questions emerging from the exposure to academic Bible study, often pose deep religious challenges for the intelligent, thinking Orthodox student.

The Lookstein Center is pleased to announce a four-day intensive seminar designed to equip Jewish educators with knowledge, research, and resources to address the topic of academic Bible study. Participants will be rewarded with a rich program of text study, shiurim, and workshops designed specifically for Jewish educators. This fully funded program will be held at the Ramaz school in NYC, immediately prior to the popular YCT Yemei Iyun in Tanach and Jewish Thought. The program is led by Rabbi Dr. Joshua Berman (Academic Director) and Rabbi Dr. Zvi Grumet (Educational Director).

Rabbi Dr. Joshua Berman is a professor of Tanakh at Bar-Ilan University and the author of two books on the Torah by Oxford University Press. He learned in Yeshivat Har-Etzion and has semikhah from the Israeli Chief Rabbinate.

Rabbi Dr. Zvi Grumet is a senior staff member at The Lookstein Center and a Tanakh teacher. He has semikhah from Yeshiva University and is the author of two books on the Torah.

пїЅThe most important artists of our time are visionary in that they continue to challenge us to see our world differently. Artists prepare the mind and spirit for new ideasпїЅnew ways of seeing.пїЅ

пїЅMary Anne Staniszewski, Believing Is Seeing: Creating the Culture of Art

The Arts Education Concentration enables students to study and explore the Jewish arts and how to integrate them into a range of artistic disciplines, age levels, and cultural contexts. Students will learn how to incorporate the arts into curriculum in a variety of educational settings and will create aesthetically rich environments for living and learning.

Students will need to take at least two electives in the arts and fulfill a practicum in a museum or in an arts organization. The concentration is integrated into the existing Davidson School curriculum. Students will receive a certificate of completion in addition to their diploma.

Join scholar Jeff Shandler (Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ) and MJH Founding Curator Yitzchak Mais (Jerusalem, Israel) to learn how to help our students develop a critical approach to understanding primary sources associated with the Holocaust. We will examine how pre-war photography has created our image of Jewish life before the Holocaust. We will learn how to identify and contextualize perpetrator photography. Teachers will also analyze images in the MuseumпїЅs Core Exhibition with an eye to using this material in their classrooms. We will conclude by exploring how Holocaust photography is being used in contemporary projects.

The program is open to current classroom teachers and is free of charge. Space is limited and advance registration is required. To register or for more information, please contact Dr. Paul Radensky at pradensky@mjhnyc.org.

The Museum is located at 36 Battery Place in Lower Manhattan and is a convenient walk from the 1, 4/5, and R trains. Parking is available within a few blocks of the Museum. For more detailed directions, please visit our website.

STAJE Seminar: Historiographic Problems of the Holocaust

What we teach about the Holocaust and how we do so are the result of choices we have made when we approach its history. What aspects of the Holocaust will we focus on? What sources will we use as we teach? How will we critically evaluate our sources? To what extent will outside concerns affect our presentation of the Holocaust? Join scholars Samuel Kassow (Trinity College, Hartford, CT), Natalia Aleksiun (Touro College, New York) and MJH Founding Curator Yitzchak Mais (Jerusalem, Israel) as we survey the major controversies in the history of the Holocaust and focus in on two case studies: Roosevelt and the Holocaust and the uses of survivor testimony. The seminar will include a workshop on how historiographic choices affect how we teach the history of the Holocaust to our students.

The program open current classroom teachers and is free of charge. Space is limited and advance registration is required. To register or for more information, please contact Dr. Paul Radensky at pradensky@mjhnycor call 646.437.4310.

This Sunday I'm planning on embarking on what for me is an ambitious project and in which I would like to invite you to join me.

It involves a minimal amount of daily study (between 20 to 30 seconds daily) of some of our most important textual sources. I plan and hope to write a single tweet (140 characters or less) about each source, each day.

Parsha - The weekly reading of the Torah, completed in one year. Each day will give a highlight or summary from one of the seven Aliyot.

Mishna - The initial redaction of the Oral Law. Will be keeping pace with the Mishna Yomi cycle which does 2 Mishnas per day and completes the entire corpus in around 6 years.

Daf Yomi - The famous 7.5 year cycle that covers the Babylonian Talmud.

Rambam - Maimonides' legal code. At the pace of one chapter a day, completes the cycle in around 3 years.

Halacha - Study of the Shulchan Aruch, Orach Chayim, the authoritative Code of Jewish Law. Complete cycle in around 4.5 years.

Now, it is particularly challenging to squeeze words of Torah into one short sentence, but we'll give it a shot. This is by no means authoritative; it is certainly the opposite of comprehensive, will most likely be cryptic and will barely be coherent. It is meant to pique interest and curiosity and encourage those who want to know more to go to the original source.

It will be available on Twitter. My id there is @bentzis

For those interested that prefer one daily email with the five different tweets, I will set up a separate email list. Just reply with SUBSCRIBE.

The Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has recently released a new digital tool, Experiencing History: Jewish Perspectives on the Holocaust, aimed to facilitate your teaching. You can find it at www.experiencinghistory.com

Experiencing History is aimed at college-and university level instructors who teach Holocaust-related courses, broadly defined. It features online collections of carefully selected Jewish primary sources, from diaries, letters and newspaper articles to photography, moving image and sound. The sources are grouped into thematic collections that allow for easy classroom integration. Each source is introduced and annotated by a Holocaust scholar, in order to provide enough historical context for a productive in-class discussion or an assignment. While context and annotation provide important background, the tool is flexible enough to allow for a number of different educational, disciplinary, methodological and other approaches, so you can use it for courses at different levels and in different disciplines.

Both instructors and students can create individual accounts, save contextualized items to their personal dashboards, search items using a search interface or by tag, and more. In addition, instructors can create a class and save specific items for their students to view.

Today, the site comprises four collections: Holocaust Diaries, Post-Holocaust Testimony, Wartime Correspondence, and Artistic Responses to the Holocaust. By January, four additional collections of material will also be available--Displaced Persons in Postwar Europe, Jewish Community Documents, Wartime Jewish Press, and The Holocaust and the Moving Image--with additional material coming up on-line in 2017.

Please feel free to forward this announcement to colleagues who you think might benefit from this tool in their teaching. Thank you, and please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

I am excited to launch "The Parsha Discussion," a new project that I am inaugurating for 5777. It is a weekly post that is designed to stimulate a discussion around the Shabbat table, especially with teenagers, based around the parsha.

A past-student contacted me and asked me to learn with him when he was visiting Israel. He wanted to study Parshat Hashavua with me. I was surprised. Why come half way around the world to study parsha; there is so much already on the internet!

He explained: "I love to discuss the parsha at the Shabbat Table. When my kids were young, we did a parsha quiz. Y'know - How many animals entered the Ark? How many sons did Noah have? For how many days did it rain? But now, my kids are 8 and 12; they don't want these informational questions. They find them childish. And I don't know how to raise discussions which are informed and relevant to them."

I find that many of my friends, who have learned in yeshiva, sometimes don't have the time, or even lack the confidence to engage the young-adults and other adults around their tables in significant Torah discussions.

I will share a post every Thursday in preparation for Shabbat which will be short, text-based, and will include questions for discussion. Join me on this exciting venture!

We are living in a moment when our youth need us more than ever. TodayпїЅs youth are deeply affected by social media, by peer pressure, by cultural expectations telling them that women need to look a certain way and men need to treat them a certain way - and these behaviors do not honor our young women or our young men. We want to give them something different.
