Creativity in Jewish Education - Guest lecture at American Jewish University

  • American Jewish University 15600 Mulholland Dr. Bel Air, CA United States

When used as a tool for inquiry in the learning process, the creative arts can be a powerful tool for bringing our full selves to the texts, unearthing new stories and insights, and fostering a deep connection to the tradition. In this class we will explore The Jewish Studio Process - an holistic, arts-based approach to Jewish learning.  Together we will consider how this unique methodology harnesses the power of the creative arts to help us continually inherit and innovate a Judaism meaningful for our lives today. JSP founders will share experiences using these methods with a wide range of learners, articulating both strategies and outcomes of their work.
