  1. Education at University Synagogue

    Students in our community at University Synagogue in southern California have experienced a substantial amount of tragedy over the past year, including hate crimes and gun violence. As more and more places of worship become vulnerable and we increase security measures, we must be aware of how our students respond, especially as it becomes more difficult to shield young people from the news.

    What is going on in a child’s mind when they ask a question? Rabbi Harold Kushner tells the amusing story of the parent who wanted to provide sophisticated theological answers to his five-year-old son who had asked about God. The father explained how God wasn’t really a person, but was instead a spirit, a miraculous presence. A few minutes later the five-year-old came back to his father and said, “I got it. God is like Casper the Friendly Ghost.”

    Greetings Edtalkers,

    This is Vicki from B'nai Havurah in Denver, Colorado. I am on the Children's High Holiday Programming committee. I have been involved with this committee on and off for about the last 8 years. I am currently asking for your input on what your synagogue does/offers for youth, grades kindergarten through 6th or 7th grade (B'nai Mitzvah) during the Rosh Hashanah/Yom Kippur Services.

  10. A Jewish Approach to Discipline

    We've all been students in classrooms where a teacher makes remarks like the following:.

    “Somebody must have gotten up on the wrong side of the bed this morning” or “I'm not surprised you forgot your homework. You'd probably forget your head if it wasn't attached to your shoulders” or “You have the lowest score in the class!” We cringe because we can imagine the hurt and embarrassment the remarks have caused. We may even be pained that in the past we said something similar to our students.
