Jackson, Mississippi is Home for the 14th Religious School Curriculum/Education Program
Marietta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/21/2016 -- Jewish people of the South recognize the significance of June 26-28, 2016, a date which marks the 14th Annual Education Conference hosted by the Institute for Southern Jewish Life (ISJL). The religious school curriculum/education program consists of 10 key content areas, and is attended by Jewish community leaders hailing from all parts of the country. Attendees have the opportunity to choose sessions that address the needs of their specific classrooms or schools, and there is no registration fee! Oy Toys is an organization that is very familiar with the conference, having attended the previous eight years in succession. Owner of Oy Toys RuthE Levy provides support to the conference with required books and other materials.
The ISJL serves small congregations in 13 southeastern states, providing training and support to the religious schools. Most of these congregations have no access to a Jewish book store except when they come to ISJL or on the web. In addition to literature, Oy Toys also provide posters, educational toys, stickers, music, videos plus some secular materials to help the teachers in the classroom.
The Goldring/Woldenberg Institute of Southern Jewish Life (ISJL) promotes Judaism and the Jewish heritage through innovative programs and shared resources. The ISJL delivers rabbinic services, an education program, and cultural events to communities seeking new solutions, or where Jewish resources are limited. The ISJL also provides historic preservation and community engagement throughout the South.
The curriculum for the conference will cover the following:
- Jewish holidays
- Jewish history
- Culture and community
- Basic Hebrew
"All of us here at Oy Toys are excited to attend the 2016 ISJL Education Conference, and to support the ISJL in their important endeavor," explained RuthE Levy. She continued, saying "The curriculum at this conference is practical, and helps teachers with class-by-class lesson plans for each grade – including both the big picture goals and the important details."
