Jewish Private Schools are Bringing Community Home

1

When Anna Klein’s daughter, Mia, was a four-year-old preschooler at Beth Tfiloh Dahan Community School (BT), her class was asked to bring in brown bag lunches for the homeless. The bags were being delivered to Beans and Bread, a soup kitchen in Fells Point, not far from where the family was living at the time.

“I volunteered to drop them off,” recalls Klein. “And when I did, it was because these are the values I want my children to learn. I want them to know that they have an obligation to give back, not only to the Jewish community, but also to the global community. And, Beth Tfiloh emphasized the values of going out in the world and doing good.”

It was this commitment to civic responsibility, coupled with the knowledge that a Jewish private school education* developed the Jewish identity of its students, that was instrumental in her desire to see her children attend BT.

“I attended Jewish private schools through 12th grade and am the grandchild of a Holocaust survivor so my Jewish identity was always very strong and a big part of who I am,” she adds.

“A Jewish day school education has proven to be one of the most important entities in securing the next generation of Jews – no matter how they choose to identify as Jews,” says Michael Elman, who co-chairs The Associated’s Day School Commission with David Hurwitz.

“The value added,” he adds “is that Jewish day schools also allow Jewish students to grow their Jewish identity without sacrificing academics but actually enhancing them.”

Recognizing the impact Jewish private schools have on the next generation of Jews, The Associated: Jewish Federation of Baltimore provides scholarship assistance to students at 11 Baltimore day schools to ensure students interested in attending can receive a Jewish education.

Three Ways to Distinguish Coughs

0

All coughs are not created equal.

We know this, right? I mean, some kids cough so loud and hard that you’re fairly sure part of their lungs will come up, whereas others seem like they need a firm pat on the back and a lesson in “just cough it up already.” And there’s everything in between. As for my own kids, I have the two extremes: one child seems only able to muster up what I’d term as “half a cough” and I feel compelled to cough myself after I hear the lame attempt, and the other one tests my psychological stability with an ongoing cough that lasts for days and reverberates throughout the entire house.

So how do I distinguish various types of coughs and determine which ones are concerning?

And how do I handle the situation of “her cough is really loose and keeps getting worse?” Because this is what I see often in my practice. Allow me to share my classification scheme here in the hopes that it will provide some insight should you find yourself hearing that dreadful noise from your child’s room late one night.

Full STEAM Ahead: NDP Program Prepares Students for In-Demand Careers

Notre Dame Preparatory Offers an Innovative, Interdisciplinary Program that Prepares Students for In-Demand Careers

Dissecting animals is one of the most anticipated activities in every high school biology class. At Notre Dame Preparatory School (NDP), that experiential laboratory assignment looks a little different than at most schools. As each biology student hovers over her specimen—in this instance, a rat—and slices into it, an NDP art student stands nearby, closely observing. She may ask her lab partner questions as she draws a representation of the subject’s vital organs on display. The moment presents an opportunity for the two students from different classes to engage in a dialogue from which they can both learn. This collaborative, interdisciplinary learning experience exemplifies NDP’s STEAM program.

Not to be confused with STEM, which stands for Science-Technology-Engineering-Math, STEAM incorporates art into the mix. At NDP, students and faculty have embraced this curious and relatively new acronym, which represents a blended curriculum that allows students to develop an interest in seemingly divergent subjects like art and science that they soon learn can, in fact, be rather complementary.
