This online course, geared for Jewish educators working in supplementary schools, will be taught through Gratz College's NEXT program.
Young adults across the world are harnessing the spirit of activism, and are taking on the challenging responsibility of putting their values into practice by advocating, rallying, & spreading their views. Jewish students are at the forefront of these movements, and as educators, we have the opportunity to use Jewish texts, stories, & values to empower these young leaders in their activism.
In this class, taught from a pluralistic perspective, we will explore activism as it relates to secular & Jewish issues. Participants will learn practical steps that educators can take to harness the spirit of activism among our students, & to provide Jewish support/grounding for those who are already advocating.
