Becoming A Soulful Educator


Wake up, educators! Move beyond conveying information, beyond the classroom, to engaging the soul.

“We ask you to take a step back from your teaching, to take a long hard look at the impact you are making-versus the impact you want to make, the impact you became a teacher to make. And if you, like so many of us, find a disconnect between the two, we offer suggestions to help you grow as an educator, to become a soulful educator.”

-from “Who Is This Book For?”

This is the essential guidebook for everyone from educators and rabbis to parents and grandparents-anyone working in formal or informal education, whether for children, teens, emerging adults, adults or seniors.
In this bold revisioning of effective education, renowned educator Aryeh Ben David recalibrates the focus of teaching from the acquisition of knowledge to touching the soul and impacting life. He presents six steps to help educators of all kinds teach to the heart, engage students in knowledge gathering without preaching or controlling, and enable students to authentically and personally integrate Jewish wisdom into their lives. He offers guidance for how teachers can share their own vulnerabilities and yearnings to model personal growth and help their students gain new clarity on their own infinite potential for positive change.
