CJN seminar in Istanbul

34 teachers came together from 16 countries to our 7th professional development seminar for European Jewish schools in Istanbul, Turkey! Teachers learned about the Centropa database and our materials, attended workshops and presentations about new methodologies and tools, disvocered the old Jewish neighborhood of Istanbul, and attended a wonderful welcome dinner in the Neve Shalom synagogue, where they were welcomed by the rabbi. 

During the seminar, each teacher found a partner from another school, and together corss-border project ideas were outlined, which will connect the Jewish school students of Europe in creative and engaging ways while also deepening their knowledge about Jewish culture, and strenghtening their Jewish identity. 

Special thanks to our wonderful partners, the Ulus Jewish School, for being our welcoming hosts for this seminar!
