Testimonials from Our Students

“I've really enjoyed being part of Herzog Global's Tanach Teacher Training Certificate program. I love the high level of the learning which we are challenged to adapt to our student population. This emphasis on classroom implementation is really helpful as a teacher, so that we can use what we've learned in the classroom setting. It's also been fun meeting educators from around the world and sharing teaching experiences. My only regret is that I don't have time to take all the courses being offered!“

Ariel Pardo

Middle School Tanach Teacher, Katz Hillel Day School, Boca Raton, FL

As an educator, the material that we learn strikes a balance between theory and practical applications to bring into all of my kodesh lessons. As a school manager, the course has given me tools to help my staff to improve their classes. Having the privilege to be guided and supported by Herzog Global’s education experts is a gift for which I am extremely grateful.

RABBI GAVI ZIEGLER

CAMPUS RABBI AT THE PHYLLIS JOWELL DAY SCHOOL IN CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA

Rimonim has given me tools and knowledge to reach my dream goal: to become a Jewish Studies teacher anywhere in the world. Its faculty is knowledgeable, approachable and fun! They gave me all the support I needed and made me feel appreciated. Taking the Rimonim program was one of the best decisions I have made in my life, BH!

Isabel Job

JEWISH STUDIES TEACHER, RABBI ALEXANDER S. GROSS, HEBREW ACADEMY, MIAMI, FL

“Thank you again for the most amazing Rimonim semester trip around Israel. Besides just being an incredible trip in of itself, I have already used so much of what we learned in my teaching. I was teaching about Shlomo HaMelech's coronation at Gichon. It was only then, showing pictures to my class (which I wouldn't have if I didn't go on the trip), when I realized what a difference actually being to the place makes. Thank you so much for the opportunity!” Rabbi Yoseph Wernick, Rimonim Graduate, 2021-22

I appreciate the teaching strategies that I have learned and the course content, which I use not only in the classroom but also to enrich my professionalism and to train others in these subjects. They not only help me with class topics, but they also enhance my identity. I appreciate the knowledge gained that will help me to support my students.
