Informal Educators Training

The Programme

Local informal Jewish educators across the region are enthusiastic and often well-trained in leadership skills and have expressed desire to enhance their knowledge on the subject of Jewish history and traditions. However, there is an extremely limited supply of resources and study materials designed for informal Jewish education which are written in Russian and tailored to a local day school context.

This programme offers face-to-face training, distance learning and collaborative working to upgrade the Jewish literacy of informal Jewish educators working in ORT schools in Russia (Moscow, Samara and Kazan) and to develop a set of programming resource materials which can be used by informal Jewish educators in the ORT network.

The Impact

As a result of this programme a comprehensive online resource is now available online which includes ideas for activities for the Jewish Holidays in schools, projects for Informal Jewish education as well as detailed programme for Shabbaton.
