Celebrating Jewish Education

No, it has not been a year since some of us experienced the Bible Raps project in April at Chidush, but based upon a request from our local Jewish educators, Chidush is moving to the fall. So, rather than wait almost two years, we are bringing Chidush to Boulder again in 2010!

Please join us for a wonderful program to celebrate Jewish education and educators in Boulder. Educators are invited to attend lunch and a workshop at the Boulder JCC begining at 1:00pm on Sunday, November 14th. Our guest educator is Nachama Skolnik Moskowitz, the Senior Director and Director of Curriculum Resources for the Jewish Education Center of Cleveland. Nachama is a nationally recognized expert in Jewish education and is a popular and engaging educator.

The entire community is invited to join us for a reception. We will hear a keynote address by our guest speaker, honor Leah Boonin, the 2010 Grinspoon-Steinhardt award winner for excellence in Jewish education and the release of the “Taste of Chidush.” A compilation of Chidush lesson plans, “Taste of Chidush” is a handy reference book for Jewish educators. If you are a past Chidush winner, one of your lesson plans may be there!

RSVP is necessary for both the workshop and reception. Please write to info@18pomegranates.org.
