For experienced classroom teachers to first time informal educators to researchers in Jewish education, our Education Collection includes practical resources, academic and theoretical texts to support your work. From nursery to Jewish Day School, from cheder to life long learning, there are curricula and pedagogies to enhance your teaching in a variety of communal settings. In addition to educational philosophy and theory in general the Education Collection focuses on issues particular to the Jewish educational experience including teaching emotive topics like the Holocaust and specialist areas such as the Jewish Festivals, Life Cycle and Israel Education. It explores methodologies of text based learning and teaching sacred texts and is particularly strong in Hebrew language resources.
