Come join us for a student-run day of learning on engaging topics in Judaism.
The relationship that all RealSchool members are taught to create within the RealSchool community and with the broader world is a caring, symbiotic one. Students may join a particular RealSchool team because of a talent or interest they have, but they must learn about the talents that others possess and how to help others pursue their interests. Therefore, though the process of joining RealSchool begins with the self and an individual’s interests, it ends in a stronger community, as students are not only consumers, that is, recipients of help from RealSchool teams, but are also producers, that is, ones who give help to fellow teams and ultimately to the larger community.
Built into RealSchool’s DNA, then, is a focus on student empowerment: students choose what and how to learn. However, students also come to realize that by doing the very things they love, they can benefit not only their peers but the community and world at large.
When & Where
RealSchool is an inquiry-based, student-driven learning program founded and run by Tikvah Wiener. In RealSchool, students decide what and how they learn based on their talents and passions. They then collaborate to use their interests to create events and projects of value in the real world.
