This course of study seeks to familiarize the student with the challenges involved in teaching Jewish peoplehood, and to present possible new visions, educational strategies and teaching methods designed to confront these challenges, taking into account that constructs such as “peoplehood,” “Jewish” and “identity” are dynamic, fluid and ever changing. There will be an elaborate discussion on definitions, goals, and best practices regarding the teaching of Jewish peoplehood.
The program includes six required and six elective courses. The required courses deal with the definitions, vision, and possible applied strategies of teaching Jewish peoplehood. The elective courses are designed to expand the learners in-depth understanding of complex issues regarding Jewish peoplehood. Upon successful completion of eight courses – six required courses plus two electives, for a total of eight credit points (the equivalent of 224 study hours), the student will be entitled to receive a specialization certificate in "Teaching Jewish Peoplehood" from The MOFET Institute's Online Academy.
