Testimonials

"I was fortunate to visit the Walder Education Pavilion. I was left utterly speechless. Every Jewish community deserves to have a place like WEP. From the countless bookcases filled with curriculum materials, to the mind- boggling array of arts and crafts, to the cutting edge computer, printer, and design equipment made available for teachers – everything that a teacher needs to become the best, could be found there. In a word: Extraordinary."

- Robert Sussman, Head of Judaic Studies, Umhlanga Jewish Day School, Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa Executive Director

"I would like to say that my recent tour of your center filled me with feelings of immense excitement and joy. Seeing how each and every room filled a different, yet invaluable need in Jewish education—aiding each and every teacher and educator that requires curricular aids, or arts and crafts for his students. At the Walder Education Pavilion, they will find everything they need for Parsha, Jewish Holidays, and every Judaic subject. The staff assists everyone in every way possible, regardless of affiliation. In addition, the center has all of the newest printers, laminators, and other machinery a teacher may need to prepare material for their holy work, with the staff always standing by, ready to help each and every teacher with a smile. May they be an example for us all!"

- Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Stern, Dayan, Merkas Chassidei Vizhnitz, Bnei Brak, Eretz Yisroel

Quick Tip: Teaching Strategies - The Envelope, Please
 
Studies show that students learn more content and retain it longer, develop higher-order problem-solving and reasoning abilities, and improve social skills through small group cooperative learning. The Envelope, Please is a teaching tool that helps you achieve all these goals.
Prepare an envelope for each group.  
On the back of each envelope write 3-5 statements/clues about the subject/item/theme, etc. you are focusing on and wish for them to learn about. Clues and answers should be different for each group. 
Write the name of the subject/item/theme, etc. on a card and put it inside the envelope.
Distribute one envelope per group. Guide the groups to discuss the clues on their envelope and predict what’s inside.
After a predetermined amount of time, announce, “The envelope, please.” The groups open their envelopes to discover if their predictions were correct.
Conclude the activity by having each group share their clues and answers with the class.
