Introduction to the worldview of the lenses - an important aspect of seamless Jewish life in our schools. A place where Jewish big ideas meet the Reggio Emilia big ideas.

What does it mean to wear a lens? Why are some schools working with the concept of seamless Judaism through these lenses? How can you create a systemic vision that emerges from Jewish values and is expressed in all aspects of the school: culture, values, decisions, relationships, curriculum and experiences?  How do lenses help you understand excellence in early childhood Jewish education?

If you ever wondered how to make Jewish life and values an important aspect of your work, come explore together! You will walk out with a new way of seeing and understanding the world of Jewish early childhood education.

This session is tailored to those who never heard about the lenses, briefly heard about them or would like a refresher of the basics.
