ISRAEL EDUCATION

TRAINING PROJECTS

All details are carefully customized with the community. Robbie's experience is in building and running long-term training projects, providing materials, support, and transformative practical training.

“Perhaps it’s his British accent, or his phenomenal ability to be both very deep and challenging while also being very accessible and charming… he is the most professional educator I have ever worked with. He is hilarious, wise, witty and talented, and everything is intertwined. His teaching is blended in to his performative abilities, the way in which he understands the group and feels its social heartbeat is deeply connected to the many years of experience in education, and it all feels very whole when encountering him. He is a rare personality.”

 

Chaya Gilboa, Director of Jewish Engagement, Leichtag Foundation 

FOR EXAMPLE,
I'M CURRENTLY WORKING ON...

Makom and Jewish Education Project

I have led this project for Makom and Jewish Education Project from its outset in 2016. By 2020 I will have trained a total of 100 teachers in New York congregational schools.

 

Qushiyot is a 10-month comprehensive project, training participants in an open approach to Israel education that embraces the vibrant complexity of Israel.

  • Individual coaching and professional development for teaching Israel in part-time settings in grades 2-12.

  • Intensive 6-day workshop in Israel, based around Makom's Four Hatikvah Questions (4HQ) method. 

  • Provided with and trained to create contemporary, meaningful, and relevant Israel curriculum 

  • Address controversial issues and your own relationship to Israel

Makom and Moishe House Project

I have led this project for Makom and Moishe House from its outset in 2018. By end 2020 I will have trained a total of 100 Moishe House residents, Without Walls hosts, and staff, in the 4HQ approach.

4HQ Israel Encounters is a yearlong program of webinars, in-person gatherings, 1-on-1 mentoring sessions and one weeklong trip through Israel. The aim of this program is to equip Moishe House residents and MHWOW hosts with the knowledge, skills and confidence necessary to create and facilitate meaningful programs about Israel.
