Transcript

  • 1. Jewbilee 2008 & Looking Forward to Jewbilee 2009
  • 2. Vision for Jewbilee 2008 <ul><li>A weekend program for young Jews and allies that strengthens identity, builds community, and enhances the experience of independent school culture. </li></ul>
  • 3. Realities of Jewbilee 2008 <ul><li>We worked with a national student advisory committee to create a dynamic weekend where students: </li></ul><ul><li>initiated relationships and built community with one another </li></ul><ul><li>explored diverse concepts of Jewish religion, culture, and practice </li></ul><ul><li>established connections to Jewish identity that have lasted beyond the Jewbilee experience </li></ul><ul><li>impacted independent school cultures by establishing new communities on campus and closer connections to TCI staff and programs. </li></ul>
  • 4. Goals reached with the 2008 Jewbilee Program: <ul><li>To reach a broad number of national students from independent school campuses. </li></ul><ul><li>To provide a warm and enriching environment for students to connect to one another. </li></ul><ul><li>To provide quality teachers and engaging learning experiences on Jewish Spirituality, Social Justice, and Leadership. </li></ul><ul><li>To excite independent school students about their prospects for connecting to other Jewish students and forming meaningful relationships. </li></ul>
  • 5. Ongoing Goals for Jewbilee <ul><li>To inspire interest in an integrated approach to life-long Jewish learning. </li></ul><ul><li>To create both campus-based and inter-school relationships among students. </li></ul><ul><li>To create a TCI young leadership cadre. </li></ul><ul><li>To continue to host a space that independent school students are attracted to because it’s FUN! </li></ul>

  • 13. Tools and methods that worked in 2008 <ul><li>Providing multiple learning approaches to exploring Jewish Identity. </li></ul><ul><li>TCI Staff connecting with students one-on-one throughout Jewbilee activities. </li></ul><ul><li>Creating an inclusive approach to Jewish learning that incorporated the interests of both Jews and participating Allies. </li></ul><ul><li>Reaching an adequate balance of “off” vs. “on” time so that students could self-direct their attention and get to know one another outside of workshop settings. </li></ul><ul><li>Connecting visiting students to the host student community. </li></ul>
  • 14. Areas for consideration in 2009: <ul><li>Requests for options of both advanced and entry-level Jewish learning tracks. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Jewbilee”- feedback that the name was hard to sell and didn’t convey the experience students actually had with us. </li></ul><ul><li>Overwhelmingly high ratings for the program on students evaluations that said that they had enjoyed being with us and were eager to continue being involved. </li></ul>
  • 15. Looking Forward… <ul><li>“ The Retreat formerly known as Jewbilee” (Symbol) invites you to join us for a weekend exploration of </li></ul><ul><li>“ Jewish in 2010- What is it?” </li></ul>
  • 16. Basic Program features for 2009: <ul><li>a change in venue to the Harvard University Campus and hospitality via the Harvard Hillel and a local hotel. </li></ul><ul><li>the weekend will feature inclusive Shabbat meals and services at Hillel that will feature presentations by both outstanding Jewish leaders and non-Jewish leaders who are allies to the Jewish community. </li></ul><ul><li>multi-tiered learning tracks on the history of Jewish Identity and community. </li></ul><ul><li>presentations from Jewish Organizations that are navigating contemporary shifts in Jewish identity and practice through their work </li></ul><ul><li>facilitated activities and discussions where young people can interactively create a vision for Jewish identity in their lifetimes and in the future. </li></ul><ul><li>A TCI Leadership Track incorporating both personal development and empowerment of the voice we hope students will have in helping to shape TCI’s work moving forward. </li></ul>
  • 17. For more exciting details on the Jewbilee 2009 millennial odyssey… <ul><li>Stay tuned… </li></ul>
