We are thrilled to partner with TALMA– The Israel Program for Excellence in English, to offer Hebrew Public network teachers an all-expenses-paid (flight, meals, accommodation, PD, excursions) summer professional development experience in Israel. Accepted Fellows will:
  • grow their teacher toolkit while collaborating in a classroom alongside a local Israeli co-teacher
  • gain exposure to the Hebrew language through an immersive cultural experience in one of TALMA’s summer placement communities
  • experience Israel through a unique professional development program that includes –
    • PD sessions with partners such as Relay Graduate School of Education.
    • Speaker-series with Israel’s ‘Teachers of the State’ such as ‘Teaching Through the Noise.’
    • Visits to social initiatives and start-ups that will expose teachers to the entrepreneurial spirit of ‘The Start-Up Nation’ while fostering a creative problem-solving approach and mindset.
    • Opportunities to connect and collaborate with Hebrew Public teachers from across the network as well as 200+ educators from around the world
    • Weekend learning retreats in locations throughout Israel…and more!
  • develop their global citizenship through a firsthand service-learning experience in Israel which they can bring back to their Hebrew Public classrooms to share with students and the Hebrew Public community.
״TALMA provided me with a unique and exciting learning experience. I learned and grew from other teachers, made connections, and gained stronger teaching habits, skills, and tools."
“Having the opportunity to immerse myself and experience the culture of Israel reaffirmed my commitment to creating a more open-minded and empathetic next generation. Spending a month in Israel gave me the opportunity to visit holy sites like Masada and the Western Wall and experience Jewish culture from a perspective I’ve not yet experienced.”
"As a SpEd teacher at Philadelphia Hebrew Public who supports ESL programming, I was excited for the opportunity to teach English and to also learn more Hebrew. Teachers who have been to Israel give students a window into the country. Now I can describe my experience, especially for Black students at our school."
"When I saw that working at Hebrew Public I’d have the opportunity to immerse myself in the Hebrew culture and teach abroad, I knew I had to apply. Now, being accepted to TALMA is like a vision coming true. TALMA offered me the opportunity to merge all my passions and use my skills to advance in my career.”
