Thursday, May 22, 2014 The Purim Superhero: Using Children's Literature to Build Community and Celebrate Diversity Presented by Elisabeth Kushner and KESHET Join author Elisabeth Kushner of Kar-Ben Publishing, together with an educator from Keshet, for a lively discussion about using children's literature as a way to simultaneously celebrate individuality and build community. In Kushner's book The Purim Superhero, a boy named Nate learns from his two dads about the superhero of the Purim story, Queen Esther, a woman who discovers that being different can sometimes be a good thing and finds the courage to speak up for who she really was. Nate's story helps children recognize that they can be all the parts of themselves at once. Participants will come away with tools to create a literature-based program that values the individual, builds tolerance, and celebrates families of all kinds.
Date TBA Hiring & Firing...What Every Jewish Educator Needs to Know Presented by Arthur Ehrlich, law partner in Goldman and Ehrlich, a Chicago based law firm. This webinar will give us a brief review of pertinent laws relating to discrimination and other laws affecting employers and employees (e.g. American with Disabilities Act and the rights to accommodations: but keeping it simple.) Arthur will explain the hiring process as to what you can and cannot ask, and what your hiring decisions can and cannot be based on.
