MuseForJews

muse: n. a source of inspiration

Indeed! Making a case for the creative (Jewish) classroom!

I read this with great interest. Hebrew College president Rabbi Daniel Lehmann, in his article at ejewishphilanthropy, states that “We need Jewish educational excellence of a certain type – Jewish education toward creativity.” Saying that “too much Jewish education looks alike,” he proposes that we encourage more student creativity, problem-solving, and focus on student passion and engagement. Lehmann suggests that we fund and encourage disruptions such as digital gaming, technology and TED talks. We need to take into consideration different learning styles and learning modalities.

Great. Now what?

Where do we start?
