Teaching Toward Meaning: Gearing your Limudei Kodesh Lessons toward your Students’ Spiritual & Psychological Needs
About the webinar
One of the biggest challenges facing educators today is how to educate toward spirituality, meaning and purpose in the Judaic Studies classroom. Many psycho-social factors in our current climate counteract our students’ ability to thrive and to create strong, self-actualized identities based on Torah values. In this seminar we will discuss these factors, and focus on how we can support and enhance our students’ emotional and spiritual growth within the context of a serious educational experience. What does research indicate are the pillars of emotional health, spirituality, and meaning? How can we incorporate these elements into our Limudei Kodesh classes in a practical way that integrates fully with our educational goals?
