I've heard of other talkspace programs, too. What's this "talkspace" thing about?
The original Bina Initiative at UNC kicked off a successful trend that has emerged recently at Hillels around the country: regularly-meeting discussion groups engaging new students in intellectual dialogue around a variety of issues and ideas that are relevant to participants’ daily lives. Firsthand reports from Hillel professionals implementing these programs have taught us that these forums are effective vehicles for Jewish engagement, identity development, and provision of meaningful Jewish experiences.
In a strategic move to connect more students to meaningful Jewish experiences, Hillel now introduces talkspace, the new name for these regularly-meeting learning communities. Israel is just one of the topics for which Hillel will distribute a talkspace curriculum of accessible educational resources around which these types of groups can be constructed. For more information on the talkspace model or the other talkspace curricula available, contact Beth Cousens, (202) 449-6564.
