2nd European Mission of Jewish Educators to Helsinki
October 8th-10th, 2018
In collaboration with the local Jewish Community of Helsinki, Arachim held a second Mission to Helsinki to give the opportunity of seeing first hand some of the most innovative and modern models in Education, and to have the chance of talking with some of the people leading this field.
Finland consistently comes out near the top of international education systems, and for years, it has been the by-word for a successful education system, perched at the top of international league tables for literacy and numeracy. Through the Special Arachim Mission, a group of Educators and Lay-leaders dealing with Jewish education today were able to take a closer look at Finnish schools revealing an education system built on new and innovative principles.
This gave the possibility for the mission participants to learn what is being done locally and to identify and replicate the secret of its successes in their own schools/communities.
