  • Carmel Academy Faculty Members Selected For Teacher Institute For the Arts

    Carmel Academy’s art teacher Lori Amer and Hebrew studies teacher Einav Dahaman-Frumess were selected to take part in the Teacher Institute for the Arts, a year-long program which brings together educators from Jewish day schools to explore Jewish text, tradition and values through artistic expression. 

    The Institute, which is developed and operated by a prominent national foundation that prefers to remain anonymous, brought the Carmel educators to California this past July for an intensive workshop. Working alongside peers from around the country, the teachers studied with Israel-based artist David Moss, who is best know for his ability to enrich Jewish life by synthesizing tradition, beauty, learning, art, and creativity into engaging new forms of expression.

  • Carmel Academy’s Director of Judaic Studies Selected to Help Revamp Curriculum In Israel This Summer

    Dr. Tali Aldouby-Schuck, Carmel Academy’s Director of Judaic Studies & Professional Development, was one of four educators recruited by the Israeli Ministry of Education to help create a curriculum exploring Jewish Peoplehood for Middle School students across 6,000 Israeli schools. 

    In this unprecedented collaboration, the Ministry was awarded a grant by the UJA-Federation of New York to bring the small team of educators to Israel in July to partner with Israeli curriculum writers to explore Jewish identity and diversity. Some of the questions discussed as the framework of the curriculum were: What does it mean for Israel to be grasped not only as a State of its citizens, but also as the national home of the Jewish People? What enduring understandings or essential questions should the curriculum writers be guided by? How can the curriculum transcend ideological divisions?

    Dr. Aldouby-Schuck reflected on the collaboration: “The process of partnering with Israeli educators to think together about educating young Israelis to think about Jewish life in more complex and nuanced ways was transformative for all of us. It challenged our own thinking about how to engage with core questions addressing Jewish Peoplehood and re-envision the relationship between young Jewish Americans and Israelis.”
