  • At the Walder [Jewish Education] Pavilion, I enjoy participating with other teachers and learning new and different projects to add to my teaching. The projects can be adapted to fit the needs of a range of ages and abilities. The energy of all the teachers brainstorming and creating different projects is wonderful and really useful for me in my work in so many ways.

They confer with each other to enhance each teacher’s and student’s experience. The materials at the Pavilion are vast and imaginative. As a teacher, it exceeds all expectations.

  • I was fortunate to visit the Walder [Jewish] Education Pavilion. I was left utterly speechless. Every Jewish community deserves to have a place like WEP. From the countless bookcases filled with curriculum materials, to the mind- boggling array of arts and crafts, to the cutting edge computer, printer, and design equipment made available for teachers – everything that a teacher needs to become the best, could be found there. In a word: Extraordinary.

  • I’d like to express my deepest appreciation for your warm hosting of our participants at the Walder [Jewish] Education Pavilion… The staff was so friendly and quick to assist at any point during the sessions.

  • I want you to know how much I enjoyed my recent visit to your center.

  • After having had the זכות of experiencing the phenomenal program that you put together for our seventh and eighth grade girls, we are overwhelmed with hakaras hatov. The girls gained a tremendous amount from Mrs. Lichtenstein’s words, the video, and the “Remember the Children” program. The girls left with an appreciation for the past, the present and with a perspective for the future. Many girls felt a connection to the Holocaust and to one and a half million children that perished, ה 'יקום דמם for the first time.

  • The book fair was exceptionally helpful. Talking with representatives of some of the publishers was a fantastic opportunity. It was much more useful than flipping through a catalog and not knowing the exact content of a book. Here I was able to compare different publishers’ books on the same subject such as Ivrit or Chumash. I got an idea which ones would suit the students in my classrooms better. I hope this is something that Walder [Jewish Education] does again!”

    Batyah Cohen

  • I want to thank you, because if not for the Walder [Jewish] Education Pavilion, many of my ideas would stay just that. Just ideas. The incredible staff helps get those ideas on paper (or poster) and into the classroom. Everyone on your staff is incredibly helpful. Lately the work I’ve been doing has required a graphic artist, and she has been so patient and resourceful. She has an eye for detail, and I am always amazed at the finished product. Thanks for providing a place to make all of this happen.

  • I would like to express how deeply impressed I was by my visit to the Walder [Jewish] Education Pavilion. It was thrilling to see the resources and educational material showcased in each room… It is impossible to estimate the tremendous impact that teachers gain from the center. It contains curricular resources for so many subjects- all beautiful in appearance, well thought out, and very useful…

  • I had the pleasure of attending the Idea Exchange Workshop on Building a Navi Curriculum. It was time very well spent. The discussion allowed us all to learn practical, hands-on ideas to enhance our teaching. I am teaching Tehillim for the second time and still groping for a style and format to work from. This workshop was what I was looking for. Thank you for opening your doors and offering innovative and worthwhile programs. Continued hatzlacha in your avodas hakodesh.

    Miriam Jaffe

  • Thank you for your kind, patient and clear way of teaching the two computer classes. I found myself understanding the material because of the clear and easy explanations. I did not feel intimidated to ask questions. The atmosphere was safe and relaxed. This experience has made me think about my own classroom. I hope that I also make the material clear and understandable in an atmosphere that is relaxed and safe. I hope they feel comfortable asking questions Thank you for modeling these very important aspects of teaching.

  • A few years ago I was approached to join for a night of fun, creativity and camaraderie, the first Master Teachers event. The range of teachers attending is very diversified. We have teachers representing all types of schools across the Chicago area, and all grade levels, from preschool to high school. I have gained from the other teachers and I hope they have gained from me. The demonstrations at the end are always enlightening and inspiring. I have definitely implemented some into my class’s repertoire.

  • The Walder [Jewish] Education Pavilion of Torah Umesorah is an unbelievable asset to the chinuch of Jewish children. Its comprehensive treatment of all aspects of education, beneficial and necessary to the success of learning growth, makes it an almost indispensable tool in the process of helping our children absorb the knowledge and values of Torah. The chinuch community owes a deep debt of gratitude to Dr. Walder and the Pavilion’s director, Mrs. Garelick.
