Event description

Description


The integration of Sephardic heritage into formal and informal Jewish learning spaces can broaden and strengthen students’ knowledge, understanding and language around issues of Jewish diversity, Jewish values and contemporary Jewish identities and experiences. We invite Jewish educators to learn how Sephardic studies can teach on the vibrant Jewish rituals and traditions of tolerance, inclusivity and spiritual flexibility, which are core components of Sephardic heritage. This conference will provide information and tools for educators and community leaders to create an inclusive platform for students to answer questions of how to navigate assimilation, issues of personal and communal identity and increasingly diverse Jewish spaces. Together we will explore Sephardic heritage and the needs and opportunities of Sephardic studies. Sessions include:

Sunday, January 27th. 10AM - 4:00PM
• The Story of Sephardic Jews in America, Rabbi Marc Angel
• Food and the Sephardic Story, Isaac Yosef of Frena Bakery
• Sephardic Spiritual Responses to Contemporary Issues Facing our Youth, Rabbi Daniel Bouskila
• Piyut Workshop, Dror Sinai
• The Value of Sephardic Education, Rabbi Tsipora Gabai

Monday, January 28th 8:30AM - 4:30PM
• North African Holocaust Experience, Dr. Sophie Roberts
• The Devaluation of Minority Experiences at Jewish Day Schools, Ora Gittelson-David & Rabbi Perry Tirschwell
• Pedagogy and Practical Application of Sephardic Studies in the Classroom, Adam Eilath
• Journey into the Mizrah Curriculum, Tamar Zaken & Nicole Hakimi

We encourage participation in both days. Space is limited and the participation of formal and informal Jewish educators will be prioritized. This conference is generously supported by the Jewish Community Federation of San Francisco and the Koret Foundation and co-sponsored by the Jewish Community High School of the Bay and Lehrhaus Judaica.
