Thank you for everyone who joined us at our 3-day professional development seminar in Vilnius, Lithuania. During the seminar, 19 educators came together to gain new resources and tools, discuss common challenges and ideas about Jewish education, and form partnerships for the future. The seminar language was English with Russian translation.
Program highlights included:
- learning about Centropa’s database of Jewish family photographs, interviews and short films;
- sharing best practices of innovative, technology based pedagogies;
- discovering the Jewish history of Vilnius as well as today’s community;
- developing lesson plans with colleagues from different countries;
- becoming a member of a unique community of European Jewish educators.
Special thanks to our wonderful partners, the Vilniaus Šolomo Aleichemo ORT gimnazija for hosting us in their school.
