    Facing Hate: A Modern Challenge for an Ancient Hatred

    Antisemitism is an ever-present ideology that retains its power in the modern era. It persists across the political spectrum, across national borders and across age, education levels and other demographic markers - and in our schools. What do we need to unlearn in order to help our students recognize and confront contemporary antisemitism effectively?

    Re-engaging with Our Institutional Missions: A Conversation for School Leaders in Jewish Settings

    Due to near-instantaneous pivots to online learning, hybrid educational models and constantly changing initiatives for health and safety, many schools have needed to pause efforts that, while central to the school’s mission, were less urgent in this unprecedented time. Please join Facing History staff and fellow Jewish day school leaders as we learn strategies and evaluative tools that will help benchmark and track how we re-engage with our unique institutional missions and reconnect with longstanding goals.

    This workshop is intended for educational leadership and administration team members, including principals and heads of school.

    Teaching for Equity and Justice in the Jewish Educational Setting

    Our vision is to support educators and school leaders both individually and collectively as they move to more equitable practices that enable all students to find their voice and civic agency, become critical thinkers, and be fully engaged in their education. During this two-day online workshop, educators will examine the connection between identity and bias, gaining in the process the tools necessary to mitigate against these barriers to equity in our Jewish communities and beyond.
