"It's not a set of curriculum or a 'truth,' but a roadmap on which to journey down the road of Jewish and Israel education," said Devra Aarons, executive director of Contra Costa Midrasha.
Aarons said one of her takeaways was that educators need to work on "creating meaning with our learners that is centered around them." Aarons said she is a big fan of the "Aleph Bet," and that she even used "Aleph Bet" cards at a board meeting and staff winter training session. But she also enjoyed being turned on to "Israel Story," an Israeli-produced podcast that reminds many of NPR's "This American Life."
