In mid-August, our partners at The iCenter hosted a a three-day festival of innovation and learning for more than 150 Jewish educators, lay leaders and professionals. The un-conference, called iCamp, was headlined by a fireside chat with noted educator and thought-leader Parker Palmer, author of The Courage to Teach, and featured the release of The Aleph Bet of Israel Education, a series of core ideas that reflect the understandings of a 21st-century approach to Israel education.
Among iCamp’s objectives was to create an environment in which educators, lay leaders and professionals can develop and share ways to cultivate an emotional and intellectual connection to Israel in Jewish Youth. It was an opportunity to gather with colleagues, experts and innovators in the field of Israel education to learn and teach, to experience and discuss, and ultimately forge new pathways in this core arena of Jewish learning.
