THE JEWISH EDUCATION PROJECT PRESENTS THE HIGH FIVE: JEWISH LEARNING THAT NURTURES THE WHOLE PERSON jesnadotorg2011 (22.49)
The High Five is a story of innovation and success. It shows Jewish education that matters for 21st century learners.
In our rapidly changing world, Jewish education cannot happen only in a classroom. Just fostering knowledge or good experiences is not enough. Leading experts in Jewish education and identity development tell us that the goal of Jewish education is to nurture the whole person.
In this film, Dr. Jeffrey Kress (The Jewish Theological Seminary), Dr. Bethamie Horowitz (New York University) and Dr. David bryfman (The Jewish Education Project), describe the five things-- The High Five-- that Jewish educators can do to fully nurture their learners and make a difference in their lives. Examples from the work of The Coalition of Innovating Congregations, a group of leading New York congregations, show us how the theory is turned into reality.
The high Five is sure to be a fire starter for the imagination of today's educational leaders!
