Gavin Hirsch, Education Director

Dear Parents,

What a week it has been! Since introducing Zeman @ Home last week our teachers have held 54 small group classes over a medium that some had never used until this began. I want to take a moment to applaud how quickly they have adapted and recognize them for their dedication and hard work!

We have learned a lot about the best way to approach Zoom classes (as I'm sure all of you have!) and we will only be improving.  Please see this document we are putting together, which is a combination of Zoom FAQs and Zoom Etiquette .  This document will be updated as we learn the best way to create a learning environment from a distance and can always be found in the Zeman @ Home folder. If you have suggestions or questions to be added to the document please don't hesitate to reach out.

I am also sad to let you know that Adar Duer, our Israeli Rishona, has been called back to Israel by the Jewish Agency. Of course, we will miss her but we are truly happy that she is back with her family. Please see this video from Adar saying goodbye. A great way to give your kids something to do would be to have them write to Adar! She can be reached here .

Looking for more to do with your kids? Tonight at 8pm Camp Ramah National is hosting a virtual concert with Rick Recht.  Rick Recht is a Jewish musician who has helped pave the way for a new wave of Jewish Rock.  You can find the concert here.

We are doing everything we can to help you stay organized.  Please save just one link: the Zeman @ Home folder will have everything you need in one place so you don't have to hunt!

As always please reach out if you need anything. We are here to help. 

Warmly,
Gavin
