FORUM FOR INQUIRY AND DELIBERATION IN EDUCATION

A ForumATID has 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 presentation.

Rav SteinsaltzOn 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.)
