Be’eri School for Teacher Education Kicks off New Year

Nearly 100 educators started the academic year at the Be’eri School for Teacher Education, launched in 2010 with Keren Karev

Nearly 100 educators started the 2011-2012 academic year at the Be’eri School for Teacher Education, which was launched in October, 2010, in partnership with Keren Karev. Fifty of these teachers are returning for their second year of study in basic and advanced teachers training tracks. This, in addition to a new cohort of 30 teachers who will begin training as Tarbut Yisrael instructors in the two-year basic teacher training track, and 18 principals and department supervisors beginning study in the principals’ track. The 18 principals who participated in the 2010-11 cohort will return to the School approximately once every six weeks for enrichment seminars. Graduates of the two teacher tracks will receive Ministry of Education certification as Tarbut Yisrael instructors.

The 2011-12 academic year, which will maintain the excellent quality of study attained in the School’s first year of operation while intensifying the level of study of second-year students, was launched with a festive day of learning. After spending the morning engaged in Beit Midrash study, educators split into three groups, led by School director Rani Jaeger and faculty members Dr. Inbar Galili-Schachter and Ariel Aviv, to discuss themes related to the High Holiday season. The groups then convened for a lecture by Rabbi Dr. Donniel Hartman on obligation and renewal and how to instill these values in students, followed by a concert of piyutim [liturgical songs] and a discussion of these songs in their historical and cultural context. The day concluded with a festive toast in honor of the new year of study and the upcoming holidays.
In October, the School will host the first open seminar day of the year. More than 100 Be’eri and non-Be’eri teachers will attend this day of workshops and lectures on the theme of introspection on the state of the Jewish home at the Hartman campus in Jerusalem.
