Detailed Information

The seminar will focus on creating impactful Jewish learning experiences- understanding and maximizing the core components of powerful and effective Jewish learning experiences. Using M2’s unique approach we will learn the theory and practice of creating experiences that will make a difference in the lives of your learners, whether they are at camp, the JCC or Talmud Torah.

The seminar will be interactive and practical. Some of the learning will be classroom-style and will include a theoretical approach to types of experiences. We will also use the city of Jerusalem as a lab in which to put the theory into practice. The seminar will include time for sharing ideas with other participants and developing new ways to improve the experiences you provide for your learners.

All food is strictly kosher.
