Update from Montreal

Herzliah’s technology team has built our online Pedagogical Centre.
This website is operated by teachers, students and graduates of United Talmud Torahs—Herzliah High Schools of Montreal.

Our team aims to develop learning and teaching tools for teachers and students, and is dedicated to the development of innovative methods in Jewish education.

Our Pedagogical Centre will promote the application of new technology in the classroom. We particularly strive to enhance the teaching of Judaic Studies through the creative use of SmartBoard technology and the implementation of multimedia tools in the classroom, in order to make the teaching of Ivrit b'Ivrit more effective.

In the coming weeks, our technology team will continue to build and post material on our Pedagogical Centre. Judaic Studies teachers will find ready-to-use and easy to adapt SmartBoard modules in Tanakh, Jewish History, Mosreshet (Heritage) and Hebrew language. Contemporary Israel issues will also be covered, with an emphasis on available audio-visual materials.

Our Pedagogical Centre temporary url is:

We encourage Judaic Studies teachers and pedagogues to join us in this didactic project. Submissions of classroom lessons, for posting on this website, are welcome. It will be great to share effective teaching techniques with colleagues worldwide.

Shabbat Shalom.
