topical educational issues will be discussed.
The first session is entitled "Yiras Shomayim: How to
get Students To Enjoy Their Learning And Davening
(prayer)." This topic is constantly on the mind of teachers
and heads of Jewish studies: how to ensure not only that
students will learn and pray, but that they will actually
enjoy it and continue doing so for the rest of their
The second session will be devoted to the topic: "How To
Maintain Discipline While Still Maintaining a Warm
Relationship." It is generally recognized that one of the
critical requirements for success in today's age in the
development of the Jewishness of a child is a warm
relationship with the teacher. However it becomes hard to
balance the discipline required in a classroom atmosphere
with the warm relationship that is also so necessary. A
question and answer session will follow with teachers able to
raise their own day-to-day concerns.
