TESTIMONIALS

“The Menachem Education Foundation provided me with a ton of support, mentorship, and courses which empowered me to lead the school and see it double in size. MEF has had a phenomenal impact on my own growth as a Mechanech, and I am seeing that the standard has been raised in the landscape of Chabad Chinuch.”

 

Rabbi Mendy Levin, Principal, Cheder Chabad of Philadelphia

Our Sinai Academy teaching staff were incredibly privileged to have training on “Higher Order Thinking in Limudei Kodesh.” The dynamic approach and sincere dedication to supporting Torah education and educators is unparalleled. While being enriched with inspiration and knowledge, we also gained multiple, practical tools to implement in our classrooms.”

 

Mrs. Zeesy Deren, Director of Sinai Academy, Cape Town, SA

“Planning an effective in-service day for staff is always stressful. Will the presentation be engaging? Will it be worth the time for the staff who had to leave kids at home and get babysitters? When I reached out to MEF, I shared my needs and concerns and was helped every step of the way to find the presenter that met our needs.

The presentation was engaging, pertinent to our diverse staff, and gave us tools and enthusiasm to immediately implement what we discussed into our current lesson plans.”

Mrs. Chanie Posner, Principal, New England Hebrew Academy, Boston, MA

“Thank you for an informative and thoughtful workshop today. It was great to bring this opportunity to our staff and share your ideas and practical suggestions for making the classroom environment more engaging for each child.”

Rabbi Gedalia Potash, Principal, Bais Menachem Yeshiva Day School, San Francisco, CA

From The Rebbe

ההצעה לערוך קורסין מזורזים להכנת מורים ולהשתמש בזה בימי החופש נכונה במאד מאד…ובודאי עושים בזה במרץ היותר גדול, ואפשר כדאי שאף אלו שכבר מוסמכים הם ישתתפו עכ“פ בחלק מהקורסין למען לחזור על הישנות ואי אפשר לבית המדרש בלא חידוש.

אגרות קודש חלק ט‘, ע‘ קסח

“The suggestion to arrange accelerated teacher training classes during summer vacation is very correct… and it is certainly important to do this with great vigor. It would be best if possible, that even those who are already trained should join at least part of the courses to review what they’ve learned before, as it’s impossible they won’t gain something new.”

Igros Kodesh, vol. 9, p. 168
