Educators Track: Living on a Prayer

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What does tefillah look like in your school?  Do boys and girls daven together or separately? Do they have different roles?  Are there opportunities for girls to lead tefillah or read Torah?  Are boys and girls interested in tefillah and open to the role it can play in their lives? The challenges and opportunities of formal tefillah differ based on age and stage, so this session will be broken into separate sections to address the specific issues that come up in preschool, lower school, middle school and high school. Presenters will discuss challenges and share best practices.

This session is closed to Jewish Day school educators who have registered for the Educators Track.
