Join other participants from the asynchronous course in a discussion about how the themes and resources raised in this course relate to their individual settings and goals. Participants will also explore next steps on their learning journey.
Reflecting on “the Dignity of Difference,” Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks once stated how "G-d does not want us all to be the same…He loves the multiplicity of languages, cultures, and colors, and creeds.” Rabbi Sacks also noted how it is our imperative, as Jews, to “bring that truth to all humankind." How does this translate to our role as Jewish educators? What does it mean to teach for ‘equity’ and ‘justice’ in the context of Jewish Education? Our asynchronous course, Teaching for Equity and Justice in the Context of Jewish Education (published June 2022), offers a five-module journey with resources and questions that attempt to answer these core questions through a Facing History & Ourselves lens.
For those who have begun or completed the course, what questions do you have? How have you used the course in your Jewish settings? What can you learn from other educators' experiences in taking this course and how they have applied what they learned? What are the next steps to continuing this work within and beyond our school communities?
