Free Webinar: Attending to Hebrew language within the practice of PI in Jewish Education
Wednesday. April 3rd   (4:00pm- 5:3:0pm EST)
Webinar with Dr. Jen Glaser
Language is a form of world-making. It not only enables us to communicate, share emotions and make plans (to name just a small part of what language helps us do), but also shapes the very way we see the world and make sense of it. In this session we will explore how attention to key Hebrew words in a text as we engage in philosophical inquiry can help students access layers of meaning that can, in turn, become a resource for organizing their own world around them. To sign up for the free webinar or request further information here

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!
