Jewish Pedagogies Resources

A core component of the Jewish Pedagogies Circle is the fellows’ development of a research paper and educational resource. These are the fruits of their labor. We offer them to you to use and explore with your learners and colleagues.

As the text says, nahafoch kola ba, turn it and turn it again, for there is much wisdom and insight in these works. We are grateful to those pioneering participants and faculty of the Jewish Pedagogies Circle, and we hope their contributions to the field will serve to stimulate, excite, and prompt more work in this area and invite feedback and participation in this important conversation.
