On Saturday, May 3, 2013, the New York School of Education (NYSOE) held "Musing and Amusing Dilemmas in Jewish Education," the final of three small group conversations for NYSOE clinical faculty members and students. Participants rotated among five conversations that explored varied issues in the field.
NYSOE clinical faculty members are experienced Jewish educators in the field who serve as mentors for student internships. Clinical faculty members include Marcie Aiuvalisit, Tirza Arad, Mara Braunfeld, Mindy Davids, Rena Fraade, Connie Heymann, Fredda Klopfer, Rabbi Maura Linzer, Evita Sokol, and Rabbi Bradley Solmsen.
Dr. Evie Rotstein, Director, NYSOE, stated, "This was an amazing opportunity to learn from experts in the field and to feel part of the Jewish education conversation as a professional."
