Adapting Podcast: The Power of Pedagogy in Jewish Education
“As my colleague Allison Cook says, 'It feels like magic, but it doesn’t take magic to make it happen, it takes pedagogy.' " Rabbi Avi Killip, Executive Vice President of Hadar Institute, joins David Bryfman to discuss what it takes to make Jewish learning- family engagement, adult education, and everything in between- magical and meaningful. She also reflects on how her struggles with dyslexia impact how she teaches today.
