Since its establishment in 2017, the Tikkun Project has helped to shape transformative learning by bringing Critical Thinking, Jewish Values, and Hands-on Action together in classroom learning. The project’s intentional focus on creating opportunities for students to make positive change, informed by progressive Jewish ideas, has allowed transformative Social Justice learning to continue to develop and flourish inside and beyond the walls of the classroom.

Join Daniel to get a glimpse inside classrooms where teachers invite students to think critically about authentic challenges and anchor learning and action within the rich inheritance of Jewish thinking. In this session, you will learn about the three foundational lenses of the Tikkun Project and how they can be used by teachers in different schools and communities to increase student engagement and to facilitate the development of meaningful social action projects with the support of local experts and organizations. This session can support teachers and administrators in day schools, supplementary schools, summer camps and other formal and informal educational settings to enhance their existing programs and to foster student action within a context of living Jewish experiences.
