FORUM FOR INQUIRY AND DELIBERATION IN EDUCATION
established the Forum for Inquiry and Deliberation in Education to serve as a home for the
broad audience of Jewish educators and communal leaders to meet on an occaisional basis to
discuss critical issues facing our community from an educational perspective. The Forum,
which is open to a wider audience than the seminars run for the ATID Fellowships, will
serve as the production ground of published and web-based materials, which will impact on
Jewish eductors and help generate a communal-wide conversation on the issues.
The Forum is also an arena through which outstanding personalities in
Jewish education and leadership can speak with and impact upon a community of teachers and
educational players. Launched in Spring 1999, the initial Forum program featured a
conversation with Rabbi Aharon Lichtenstein in which he responded to questions from
teachers about some of the "global" issues they face. Another program featured
Dr. Avivah Zornberg, who delivered then "dissected" a model lesson, allowing
participants to understand her pedagogical method and mode of preparation and
December 1, 1999 the Forum hosted a panel discussion on "Reforms to the Traditional
Talmud Curriculum" and in January 2000 a discussion evening with Rabbi Adin
Steinsaltz on "The Role of Talmud as a Primary Factor in the Shaping of Jewish
Identity." (See below for more.)
