AJE Professionals
Explain New Goals

H

oward Gelberd wants a
board of directors that
works — no rubber
stamps or parent-like at-
titudes.
In hopes of guaranteeing
such a partnership, the execu-
tive director of the Agency for
Jewish Education invited new
and old board members to the
building Oct. 11 for dinner, a
tour and an opportunity to meet
new staff members, view pro-
gramming, learn about chang-
ing direction and sign up for
committee work.
The board, consisting of more
than 20 members with familiar
names like Alex Blumenberg
and new faces like Nina Chud-
nof, will assist in AJE's first-
year focus on supplementary
schools.
Five hundred educators, 25
schools and between 6,000 and
7,000 students will be served.
Harlene Appelman, director
of educational services, said not
only will AJE be changing its
focus from the direct education
of students to teacher training,
resource and community build-
ing, it will target families, at-
risk populations — like
single-parent households — and
utilize available media and
video technology.
An example of the possibili-
ties came to life with Nira Lev.
The director of .AJE's Hebrew
Interactive Learning Center
demonstrated for the board a
program currently being devel-
oped between Israel and a pro-
fessor at the University of
Michigan.
A television screen shows
videos of Israeli youth speak-
ing. Various words can be high-
lighted and photographs shown
to illustrate the conversation.
Students can hear the language
spoken and identify sounds and
pictures with objects.
The Hebrew Interactive
Learning Center is part of the
school services directed by
Shawn Locke. Also included are
the recently renovated resource
center for teachers — filled with
games, tapes and art supplies,
special-needs services and
teacher training.
A conference for synagogue
and community educators will
kick off the training at Congre-
gation Shaarey Zedek on Oct.
31.
Also included in the tour was
the new home of Jewish Expe-
riences For Families (JEFF).
Formerly housed at the Maple-
Drake JCCenter, JEFF creates
temple, synagogue and com-
munity programming centered

around holidays and Jewish is-
sues. It also translates its ma-
terials into Russian to help in
the acculturation process of new
Americans. The emphasis is in-
formal education.
Among JEFF's newest en-
deavors in the Whizin Institute
training for family education
Oct. 27-28 and upcoming Jew-
ish self-defense training.
The renovated community
high school and Midrasha adult
education programs also were
discussed.
Board member and vice-pres-
ident Barbara Kiarman said of
the tour, "I hope to see these
programs in action soon. I feel
good about what our children
will be learning. Now we need
to function to make our own
synagogues aware of what is
out there. I think we're all
pretty amazed at what is avail-
able." ❑
