Education for Halacha Conference at JCT
In June, JCT hosted a conference for educators in religious institutions entitled The Education for Halacha – Challenges and How to Handle Them. The conference was initiated by the Halacha Center, headed by JCT’s Head of Batei Midrash, Rav Yosef Zvi Rimon, and was attended by dozens of educators who came to study and discuss methods for handling the challenges of religious education.
During the event, an open discussion on the topic was held by Rabbi Gilad Louis, Rabbi Elisha Aviner, Rebbitzon Hannah Heinkin, and psychologist Dr. Baruch Kahana. The conference was a collaborative effort between the administration of the state-religious education and the Department for Religious Culture in the Ministry of Education.
