The Schechter Day School Network is delighted to announce a new initiative in partnership with Yeshivat Hadar, an egalitarian center of serious text study in Manhattan. This project is designed to enable the Schechter Day School Network to help its member schools maintain high standards in the teaching of Rabbinics.
Thanks to generous funding from the Avi Chai Foundation in partial support of this unique and exciting professional development program, the Network is announcing that it will accept applications for a cohort of teachers in Schechter schools to participate in the Executive Seminar at Yeshivat Hadar with an extension of four additional days of learning and pedagogical discussions.
Dates: Monday morning, July 9, 2012 through Wednesday afternoon, July 18, 2012.
Program content: Please look at the website of Yeshivat Hadar’s Executive Seminar for more detailed information.
Note: Schechter teachers will apply through the SDSN, not through Mechon Hadar.
Where: 190 Amsterdam Ave, New York City
When: Full days, July 9 – July 13 at noon, and July 16 – 18 until 3:30 pm
For Whom: Judaic Studies teachers of rabbinic literature
Additional days of study and interactive sessions focused on the application to classroom settings in Schechter schools will be built into the program.
