Transforming Religious School into Camp: A Look at the why and How
Dr. Roberta Louis Goodman
We participated in a workshop on innovating in Jewish education that lead to our creation of Camp@NSCI for our 3rd and 4th graders. We consulted with experts locally and nation-wide to design this program. This webinar will review why we decided to transform our Sunday program into camp and how we do it. We will share how we are measuring our success too.

Jewish Education: Is There an App for That?
Ira J. Wise R.J.E.
Every 18 months, computer processors become twice as fast and half as large as they were before. Everyone is talking about incorporating digital technology in Jewish education, and many of us wonder about the best ways of doing that and how we will be able to cope with the changes. In the words of Douglass Adams – DON’T PANIC!
Whether you are digital sabra (native), olah (immigrant) or tayar (tourist), this webinar will help you begin to sort things out. Join Ira Wise for an exploration of some of the possibilities, the costs (financial, logistical, spiritual, etc.) and the benefits (spiritual, communal, educational, etc.).
Ira J. Wise, R.J.E. is in his 18th year serving as the Director of Education at Congregation B’nai Israel in Bridgeport, CT. He is a Digital Oleh and consults with educators and congregations on how to make digital technologies an effective component in learning, teaching and administration. He loves this stuff, and he is still certain that the best learning happens with a great teacher, a bunch of students and some Jewish texts.
