‘Challenges in Jewish Education Panel’ Program Planned in Stamford

Rabbi Tzvi Bernstein

Rabbi Avi Bloom, head of technology at SAR High School in the Bronx, and Sarah Rubinson Levy, an educational consultant on technology from Denver, Colorado, will discuss “Artificial Intelligence: Applications to the Day School Curriculum” at the annual Challenges in Jewish Education Panel. The one-hour program will be held at the Young Israel of Stamford on Shabbat morning, June 8, at 11 a.m., immediately after morning services. The event, which will be moderated by Rabbi Tzvi Bernstein, is being sponsored by the Bi-Cultural Hebrew Academy in Stamford in partnership with the Young Israel of Stamford.

“I’m excited that we will once again bring two top-notch Jewish educators to our community to discuss a timely and important issue relating to our community,” said Michael Feldstein, who is organizing the event. “In years past, we have had more than 200 people come out on a Shabbat morning to hear our speakers. It demonstrates that our community members are interested and concerned about challenging topics facing our community and want to hear what other professionals from other schools have to say on the subject.”

Bloom has been at SAR High School as its director of technology for seven years. Before that he worked at the school as a teacher and as the student activities coordinator. He received his rabbinic ordination and master’s degree in education from Yeshiva University.

Sarah Rubinson Levy

Levy has been an education consultant and curriculum developer for the past 20 years. She was the founder and head of school at Einstein Academy in Denver and the director of Jewish life and learning at the Denver Jewish Day School. She is the founder of Sarah Rubinson Consulting and Contracting, where she advises school administrators on how they can effectively integrate various new technologies into their curricula.

The panelists will continue the dialogue and answer questions from the audience at seuda shlishit at 8 p.m., following Mincha. The program is sponsored by Gayle and Howard Rothman and open to the entire community.
