Beginners Seminar: Laura and Alvan Siegal Summer Institute,
Case Western University, Cleveland OH. This year was our 3rd year of offering professional development in Philosophical Inquiry with Tanakh through the Siegal Summer Institute at Case Western University. The seminar brought together educators from across the denominations and from both Synagogue Schools and Day schools around the country.
The seminar was led by Dr. Howard Dietcher from Hebrew Univeristy, Jerusalem, Dr. Jen Glaser from ‘Engaging Texts’ and teachers in Cleveland who are completing their Teacher Educators training in this approach: Bonnie Gordon, Marla Wolff, Amelea Zamir and Benjamin Barnett.
