The heart of the Global Beit Midrash is a student-centered digital, global, collaborative, project-based initiative, with four corners: narrative, text, culture, and social action.
Students from multiple cities around the world create and share video narratives that express the nature, challenges, and opportunities of Jewish life in their cities.
The first collaborative text project is building a teenagers' Haggadah commentary, in which Jewish students around the world create downloadable commentaries in response to questions and themes from the Passover Haggadah.
Within a global, digital cultural museum, students construct individual and collaborative exhibits based on a variety of cultural artifacts (music, art, architecture, drama, dance, and shared cuisine).
Students from different cities address common social action issues including how their communities engage poverty, hunger, homelessness, and the elderly. They design, facilitate, and fine-tune social action projects, teaching these skills to one another as they go.
