But, I Don't Teach History! Using Historical Sources in Jewish Education

Dr. Judith Rosenbaum, Director of Public History, and Etta King, Education Program Manager, led the second program in the Jewish Women's Archive's Sharing Stories/Inspiring Change webinar series.

We often hear educators say: "I love the primary sources, but I don't teach history!" In this program, JWA Education Staff presented some ideas for using historical sources across the curriculum—whether you are teaching Torah, tefilot, holidays, or Jewish values. Watch the video to learn about how to integrate primary sources into your classroom and share your ideas with other educators about how to build connections between different entry points for Jewish education.

This is the recording from the webinar held on Thursday, January 10, 2013 at 8pm.
