CJM’s Spring Teacher Open House THIS Sunday!

About the Program

Join the CJM for a Jewish educator extravaganza filled with engaging and inspiring programs. Come for one, or stay for all:

What is a Jewish Question?
3–4 PM

Are We There Yet? artists Gil Gershoni and Ken Goldberg, in conversation with Rabbi Noa Kushner, and professors Daniel Boyarin and Ari Kelman as they discuss how the art of questioning frames contemporary Jewish life, culture, and education.

Exhibition Tours, Resources, and Refreshments
4–5 PM

Enjoy behind-the-scenes tours of two new exhibitions, Are We There Yet? and Charlotte Salomon: Life? Or Theatre?, and get to know companion curricula.

A social media curriculum launch: The curriculum companion for Are We There Yet? was co-developed with local educators as part of the year-long LINK fellowship. The curriculum is accessible through a Facebook group page where educators can share experiences using the lessons and activities. Comment, post, and join the conversation on the Facebook group: Are We There Yet Curriculum Guide (live on March 31), and chat with LINK fellows at this event.

Torah Closing Program and Reception
5–6:30 PM

This dialogue—between As it is Written: Project 304,805 scribe Julie Seltzer and her teacher, Jen Taylor Friedman—celebrates the completion of Seltzer’s 16-month undertaking of writing a Torah as part of the CJM’s exhibition. As is traditional, the completion (siyyum in Hebrew) of a Torah is followed by a festive reception with sweets, music, and dancing.
