Jerusalem, Israel: Ayeka: The Center for Soulful Education has announced that it has selected Atlanta Jewish Academy, Hillel Day School of Metropolitan Detroit, Milton Gottesman Jewish Day School of the Nation’s Capital, and Netivot HaTorah Day School in Toronto to participate in a cohort funded jointly by The AVI CHAI, Kohelet, and Mayberg Foundations. Ayeka has been awarded a two-year grant to partner with Jewish day schools in North America to implement Ayeka’s Soulful Education methodology for Judaic Studies teachers, beginning January 2018.
The goal of the multi-year program is to enable selected Judaic Studies teachers to become proficient in implementing Ayeka’s game-changing Soulful Education pedagogy in their classrooms, as well as to coach other Judaic Studies staff at their schools in Ayeka’s proven methodology. The program will include retreats, on-site coaching sessions, individual mentoring and virtual conversations for selected staff as well as administration of the selected day schools.
