Eichler-Levine returns from JWA ‘Institute for Educators’

July 31st, 2008

Jodi Eichler-Levine, Ph.D., of Oshkosh, was one of 25 educators from across the United States chosen to attend the “Institute for Educators” program hosted by the Jewish Women’s Archive in Brookline, Mass., the week of July 13.

The institute included workshops, seminars and performances by prestigious educators, scholars and historians on a variety of subjects that “explored themes and resources in Jewish women’s history and [the participants] learned creative techniques for incorporating untold women’s stories into their teaching,” according to a release.

“‘For bringing Jewish studies to a university where there has been no Jewish studies, the ability to find a common thread of stories, or families, or objects, will really help me bring Jewish studies to my students in a much more accessible way,’ said Eichler-Levine of her experience at the institute,” the release said.

Eichler-Levine is an assistant professor of religious studies at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, where she teaches women’s studies and Jewish studies. She received her Bachelor of Arts from Brandeis University in 2000 and her doctorate in religion from Columbia University in 2007.
