Description

Rabbi Dr. Howard DeitcherWonder, Curiosity and Meaning Making: Cultivating the Spiritual World of Young Children

Rabbi Dr. Howard Deitcher

Young children encounter spirituality on a regular basis and express a sense of curiosity and wonderment about the mysteries of the transcendent and the divine. In this session, we will explore children's spiritual queries and how they comprehend, wrestle with, and ultimately make sense of their inner lives. Through analyzing young children's conversations about spirituality, reviewing excerpts from children's books, viewing video clips and doing interactive exercises, we'll try to understand how to help cultivate their world of wonder within.



Rabbi Dr. Howard Deitcher is a thought-leader in Jewish education. He is a faculty member and former director of The Hebrew University’s Melton Centre for Jewish Education and current Educational Director of the University’s Revivim Program, which trains outstanding students to teach Jewish Studies in Israeli national schools. He has published numerous articles, co-edited four books, and is a member of the Israeli Ministry of Education's Committee on Bible Education. His current areas of research include ‘Philosophical and Theological Questions in Bible Education’ as well as ‘The Philosophical World of Young Children’.
