and she's dynamic."
Lev develops a rapport with
her students through an
animated friendly style and
an interest in her students'
needs. When she searches for
materials to present to the
class she keeps in mind those
things that are close to her
students' lives, and items
that she feels will be
enriching. Not only do her
students learn from her, but
she learns from them as well.
"They (the students) have to
talk about their ideas, their
feelings, their lives, so you're
enriched no less than the stu-
dent by the content of what
comes up in the class?" she
explained.
"I think the purpose of
education is to arouse the in-
terest, to arouse the motiva-
tion, to help the student so
that later he will go learn by
himself . . . Education in any
field is a way of enriching
your own thinking, develop-
ing your own personality."
Lev said she hopes to bring
to her students a greater ap-
preciation for the Hebrew
language, Israeli culture and
literature and Judaism. "I

hope they will go to Israel and
use what they've learned.
Through Hebrew, people get
closer to Judaism and to
Israel. I hope they will have
the ability to use the
language and to feel more at
home when they go to Israel?'
Her appreciation for the
warmth and opportunity ex-
tended to her by her adopted
community is shown in the
energy and enthusiasm with
which she teaches her classes.
Her students find her pretty
amazing. "She's an artist at
teaching," said Dr. William
Beres, a Wayne State Univer-
sity physics professor. "She's
incomparable." Lev thinks
her students are pretty amaz-
ing too.
"I'm amazed at the commit-
ment of people to the study of
Hebrew and the commitment
of the high school students
who have so many interests.
I'm amazed by their commit-
ment, interest and motiva-
tion?'
According to Dr. Grinbaum,
"there is no comparison bet-
ween her and other people
(teachers)!" To Joseph Colten,
"she's the only game in
town." El

Canadians Develop
Hebrew Curriculum

Toronto — A newly-revised
curriculum outline for On-
tario's 25 afternoon Hebrew
schools, prepared by the
department of education and
culture of Canadian Jewish
Congress, Ontario Region,
stresses a more intensive
Jewish education for students
in grades-- kindergarten
through six.
According to Director of
Education, Dr. Edmond Y.
Lipsitz, the updated outline,
now in is fourth edition,
recommends that afternoon
school students attend classes
for a minimum of six hours a
week, wherever they live and
use the time for intensifica-

tion of the study of Hebrew in
all grades, and the study of
Tanach (Bible), current
14
events, Jewish identity and
Jewish history in higher
grades.
The 65-page curriculum
will be field-tested in various
Ontario afternoon schools
soon. In general, the
guidelines intend to develop a
complete Jewish personality
within the student, so that he
or she can live the life "of a
religious and nationally con-
scious Jew within the general
community."
The curriculum emphasizes "4
