<div>When over 35 leaders of local Jewish teen philanthropy programs gathered together at the Jewish Teen Funders Network (JTFN) Seminar on "Best Practices in Jewish Youth Philanthropy" in June 2008, we worked to define the term "Best Practice." We determined that Best Practice isn't about something being the "best and only way," but that it is a process and product of collaboration, networking, challenging assumptions, investigation, and common voices that run throughout the field. Whether you are a seasoned professional in the field or just looking to begin your first youth philanthropy program, we hope that this information will help in your on-going visioning, program improvement, and assessment. In addition, we hope that you will contribute to its on-going development and revision.<br /><a class="doclink" href="index.php?option=com_docman&amp;task=doc_download&amp;gid=444&amp;Itemid ...

<div>The Brandeis University Summer Institute for Israel Studies (SIIS) has as its goal "normalizing" Israel studies within the academy-making the study of Israel a part of the curriculum of higher education. To that end, it prepares established faculty members to teach about Israel within the frameworks of their own disciplines. To date, the Institute has educated five cohorts of over 100 college and university faculty members to teach about Israel. Each year an independent evaluator has collected data from SIIS fellows about their courses and the impact of the Institute on their scholarship and teaching practice. This year, fellows from the first four cohorts, 2004-2007, responded to the survey and described their courses, their impressions of the impact of SIIS on their teaching and professional development, their reactions to post Institute programming, and their needs for the future ...
