Why should I watch or attend the webinars?
Our educational philosophy is based on the idea that historical documents (photographs, letters, posters, sermons, etc.) can provide an entry point to almost any aspect of Jewish life. Primary sources can provide a fresh take on an old idea, and their modern context is interesting and relatable to students of all ages. Plus, historical sources are often in English (making them more accessible) and will introduce voices and perspectives that aren’t represented in traditional Jewish texts (like the voices of women). In this series, you will learn new stories about Jewish heroes and Jewish activism, as well as hear concrete ideas and examples for leading primary source-based learning in your community.
