muse: n. a source of inspiration

Israel…live in your classroom

Friday night at synagogue my rabbi spoke for a few minutes about the Women of the Wall. It occurred to me that this would be a good thing about which to teach my 8th and 9th graders. And, after all, I had an expert at my disposal…my daughter, who had just davened with the Women of the Wall last rosh chodesh.

I really wanted my kids to hear about this from her, but she’s there and we’re not.

Enter Skype, a computer and a projector…

Easy peasy. We Skyped with her from my wifi-connected computer, while she was projected on my classroom wall, and the kids got to hear firsthand about the Women of the Wall.

I’m dying to use this again!
