Spotlight: Yael Kreiger

yael_headshotBible Raps curriculum whiz Yael Kreiger has already achieved several milestones in 2010: Having celebrated her wedding in January, Yael's Bible Raps Teacher's Tool Kit has now been distributed to more than 150 teachers representing 6 countries and 20 U.S. cities. In fact, eight classrooms are now pioneering semester or year-long Bible Raps courses! Pilot classes include:

*Harrison, NY    JCC
*Hartford, CT    YACHAD Community Hebrew High School
*Nashua, NH    Temple Beth Abraham
*Orlando, FL     The Beit Hamidrash program
*St. Louis, MO   Solomon Schechter Day School

Thank you teachers for your amazing initiative! By developing the Teacher's Tool Kit, Yael has proven that the essence of Bible Raps–fun, interactive rhythm & rhyme-based teaching–can be replicated in classrooms everywhere.
