Yom Iyun / Day of Learning

  • TBD San Francisco (map)

Unlocking Wonder
This year’s Yom Iyun/Day of Learning is co-sponsored by Jewish LearningWorks and Peninsula Jewish Community Center. Our learning is focused on Jewish family engagement and is geared towards educators in all positions - including classroom teachers, school directors and family educators. Our day will be led by Master Teacher Karina Zilberman, founder of Shababa at New York’s 92nd St Y and 2012 Covenant Award Winner.  

Experience a day full of music, connection, exploration and magic.

Enhance your toolkit through collaborative experiential learning focused on:

The Art of Engaging Families (Morning)
Learn how to create meaningful experiences for all generations together.

Welcome to the “No Shushing’ Zone  (Afternoon)
Learn how to lead family experiences without shushing and learn best practices to effectively utilize transitions for
continuous engagement.

This learning has universal value and appeal across all Jewish educational frameworks including preschools, day schools, camps and synagogues.

About Karina
Shababa began in 2007, when Karina Zilberman went with her guitar and her beloved puppet, Coco, to the 92nd Street Y lobby to sing, play and celebrate Shabbat. Karina believed that Jewish life could be a playground, and families could connect with Judaism and with one another in a relaxed, soulful and meaningful environment.

Since 2007, Shababa has grown into a wide array of Jewish family experiences for all generations. 92Y Shababa has released three albums of Jewish family music, and hosted concerts and workshops at 92Y and around the world.
