New academic opportunity: This summer an academic course about Jewish peoplehood and innovative education will be taught at The Museum of the Jewish People at Beit Hatfutsot in cooperation with Tel Aviv University (TAU).
Taught in English and academically accredited 4 points by TAU the course will examine new and innovative methods of Jewish education, including the creative use of digital museum resources in the classroom. The course will explore various approaches to teaching Jewish peoplehood in order to help teachers discuss the evolution, differences, and similarities between Israel’s Jewish population and Jewish communities and individuals around the world.
