Facing History and Ourselves’ Jewish Education Program presents
A Workshop For Educators in Jewish Settings
Please Join Us!
Tuesday, April 23rd
The Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust
100 The Grove Drive, Los Angeles, CA 10036
for a workshop on:
Sacred Texts, Modern Questions:
A Synthesis of Values, Sacred Texts and the Humanities
The evening will begin with an opportunity to connect, discover and explore. We’ll hear from participating Los Angeles Schools about their partnership with Facing History, highlight resources and explore ways to create new relationships with local educators, organizations and schools.
The second part of our evening will be a workshop on Facing History’s newest resource, Sacred Texts, Modern Questions. This study guide is a five-unit collection of lessons that explores sacred texts of the past and the questions that shape our present. The guide makes connections between instances of moral courage in Pharaoh's Egypt, struggles of conscience and faith in Hitler's Europe, as well as readings from today's influential thinkers. Our goal is to integrate original Facing History resources with biblical, rabbinic, and contemporary Jewish sources.
With more than 30 readings, pages of full-color artwork, and a variety of classroom strategies, activities, and questions, Sacred Texts provides opportunities for educators of both Judaic and general studies to integrate learning and encourages interdisciplinary conversations.
Kosher dinner will be served.
