Welcome New Educators!

Howdy and Shalom!

Here's a copy of my Sunday morning presentation on technology in Jewish education.  You can see most of it online, in miniature, but not the embedded videos or the audio files.  For that, follow the link and download the whole powerpoint file. (You must have Microsoft Powerpoint installed on your computer in order to see it that way.)

 Also, there's a place in the margin of this blog where you can sign up to have an email sent to you any time I post new content.

Thanks for stopping by!

What Does It Mean to Be Jewish?

Facebook has made popular the idea, or at least the explanation, of "it's complicated". My relationship with Judaism is complicated. So is my relationship with Israel. My relationship with God is even more complicated than that. This video expresses some of that complication.


What does it mean to YOU to be Jewish?

Plastic Bottle Mezuzot

The kindergarten to third grade class learned about mezuzot after learning to sing the sh'ma. They looked at a real scroll, which has the sh'ma and a few other paragraphs, including v'ahavta. Everyone copied or traced the sh'ma onto their own "scrolls" and decorated the plastic bottles.

From Mezuzot

שְׁמַע יִשְׂרָאֵל יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ יְהוָה אֶחָד
Listen, Israel. Adonai is our God. Adonai is one.
