HUC-JIR Institute for Religious School Teaching Assistants

Thursday, August 1, 2002

The HUC-JIR Institute for Religious School Teaching Assistants will be held on HUC's Cincinnati campus, September 27-29, 2002.

This is an excellent opportunity for your congregation's 10th-12th grade religious school teaching assistants to come together and discuss, learn, and celebrate being TA's in your congregation.

They will be lead in this programming by the rabbinical interns in HUC-JIR's Youth Programs office and by two of education students from HUC-JIR's Rhea Hirsch School of Education.

Students will also have the opportunity to study with Dr. Racelle Weiman, Director of HUC-JIR's Holocaust and Humanities Education Center and return to your congregation with valuable tools that they can bring back to help aid in such education at your synagogue.

Students will not only study during this weekend, but will also socialize, worship, and celebrate Shabbat and Simchat Torah with the HUC-JIR community.

Students are nominated by their congregational clergy for this program. Every congregation has the opportunity to send two students to this program. The cost of the program is $85 plus round-trip transportation to Cincinnati.

Please contact Brigitte Rosenberg, Assistant Director of Recruitment and Youth Programs, with questions or nominations or e-mail HUC-JIR's Youth Programs interns directly at YouthPrograms@huc.edu

HUC-JIR looks forward to hosting your students.
