Studio 70 workshop at Edah – August

Studio 70, Edah and Engaging Texts
Edah, an afterschool community in Berkeley, has been working with Engaging Texts to bring PIJE to their program since 2013. With the birth of Studio 70’s Jewish Learning Innovation Core  two years ago this relationship has now become institutionalized. This August we inducted a new group of JLIC fellows into philosophical inquiry along with providing advanced work in curriculum design for staff and second year Fellows.  “Beginnings” is the opening theme for Edah this year – a fitting topic given Edah has just moved to a new physical location.  Under the guidance of Yafit Megidash, we developed this theme through the lens of PIJE during the workshop. Studio 70 is also a regional hub for a yearly National workshop in PIJE, and Yafit is also now taking PIJE to other schools in the Bay area. If you are interested to know more, contact Yafit at Studio 70.

About Jen Glaser

Hi. I am the founder and Director of 'Engaging Texts'. As an educator I have been involved in Philosophy for Children for around 30 years - and I have been involved in informal and formal Jewish education even longer. Four years ago I decided to bring these two passions together through developing the field of "Philosophical Inquiry in Jewish Education". I am so happy to have met, and been able to work with, so many of you in this process. My goal over the coming years is to continue to develop and expand this field. I would say more about why, but you can rad about that on the website. I also want to say that this endeavour would not have been possible without the generous support of both the Covenant Foundation and the JECC in Cleveland Ohio, for which I am very grateful!
