Description: Today, with so much knowledge available at our fingertips what is the true function of the educator? How is it different from the teacher?s task of transferring knowledge?
Traditional Jewish education, especially as taught by those singular individuals who walked the path of Kabbalah and Chassidut, has always viewed the role of the educator as composed of inspiration and integration. Without focusing on the students? spiritual development it is impossible to expect that knowledge alone make them into responsible and caring individuals.
The Art of Education seeks to focus the educator on creating a lasting impression on students by opening their spirits to their own higher realms of consciousness and then helping them integrate newly found energy, will, and insights into everyday life. By analyzing the Hebrew word for ?education? (chinuch) and its counterpart ?guidance? (hadrachah), Rabbi Ginsburgh leads the reader through a kaleidoscopic journey into depth within depth of the psyche and the soul and their function and growth through our relationships with those who educate us.
The figures of Abraham, the archetypal educator of the Bible and Moses are explored and new meanings and educational techniques are revealed. The second part of this volume focuses on explaining the Kabbalistic ?key? that allows each of us to unlock our educative skills.
Based on the depth of understanding found in the classic teachings and stories of Hassidut, The Art of Education is sure to change your approach to education, whether you are a parent, a teacher or work with adults.
