Questions you should ask about your child's learning environment It is no secret that Jewish families hold education in high regard. Wanting the best educational expe- rience for your child is not only expected, it is a tradition which no Jewish parent wants to change. So how does a parent know if the classroom will meet expectations for a successful learning experi- ence? What questions should you ask when visiting your child's school, or a school you are consid- ering for your child? Alfie Kohn, educator and author of many books and articles on edu- cation, points to a number of fundamentals that help make class- rooms (whether in kindergarten or in high school) conducive to student success in learning (Educational Leadership, September 1996). Let's examine these elements, referred by educators as "best practices": Furniture: Parents may have gone t...

Sometimes it just happens in odd ways. Matthew Feldberg launched the Jewish club at the Stevenson School in Pebble Beach, Calif., as a joke. Annoyed that a Christian club at his school was "getting all the glam," Feldberg, 17, and another student founded the Federation of Jewish Intellectuals two years ago. Then a funny thing happened: Other students, Jewish and non- Jewish alike, showed interest. Now 20-25 students are involved in the Jewish group at the school, says Feldberg, a senior. The group gets together occa- sionally to learn about Jewish holidays. There are also e-mail com- m...

She then makes sure all the Jewish girls have places to go for the High Holidays. Since Bashevkin is active in the local Jewish community, Jewish parents feel comfortable sending their daughters to West over. Two children of local Jewish federation staffers recently graduated from the school. At a morning Westover assembly on a cold December day, several Jewish students, dressed in home- made yellow T-shirts, do a step-dancing routine popularized by black fraternities. The goal of the "Jews in Step" show: advertising the school's annual Chanukah party. The results can be seen that night, when more than 150 people, mainly students, show up for the party, which features a klezmer band and latkes, in addition to brownies ...

Again, a claim to greatness that cannot be immediately verified. In Jewish tradition we are taught, "Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes (Proverbs 3:7)"; and, that "Arrogance is the gate to many evils (Orot Tsad- dikim, 15C, ch. 1)." In other words, the bragging in which the rabbit and the bear engage was not only unseemly, it was anti- Jewish. Excessive pride is just not a Jewish value. Rather Judaism recommends humility, anavah. Isaiah tells us, in chapter 57:15, that God says, "I will dwell... with him that is of a contrite and humble spirit." Rav Kook tells us that humility would lead to joy, courage and inner dignity. We need not be unnecessarily humble either. Rabbi Bunim taught that one is to carry two pieces of paper. In one pocket should be the note "For my sake was the world created." This piece of paper is for those days when...

There is quiet optimism on both sides, with both leaders intimating that they will be prepared to make far-reaching concessions if the other side reciprocates with bona- fide peace moves.

In addition, the leading opposi- tion in the Knesset, which voted 58-56 to approve the government, has made clear that it, too, will back his plan. On Tuesday, Sharon called Abbas to congratulate him on his victory Sunday. Abbas won 62 percent of the vote in his effort to succeed Yasser Arafat, who died in November, as the president of the Palestinian Authority. According to Israel Radio, Sharon and Abbas agreed to stay in contact and to meet in the coming weeks. In outlining the Israeli position toward the Palestinians, Sharon has made clear that Abbas must disarm recalcitrant terrorist militias before substantive peace talks can begin.

Besser TJP Washington Correspondent Domestic policy advisor stirs little controversy Speaking of nominations, Jewish groups are keeping a very low profile on the appointment of Claude Allen as chief White House domestic advisor. Allen, currently deputy secretary of Health and Human Services, is an ardent social conservative with strong views on abortion rights and abstinence-only education. He also angered gay rights groups with his comment about "queers" when he served as an aide to former Sen. Jesse Helms (R-NC). Those views made him anathema to Senate Democrats, and he was expected to be one of the judicial nominees filibustered by opposition forces. But Allen's nomination never came up for a Senate vote, and when Presid ent Bush reappointed 20 of the filibustered judges as the start of the current congressional session, Allen was not among them.
