More and more people are embarking on a journey to find their genetic roots in order to trace their family history and to obtain some kind of current health indication. These genetic tests can show you your family’s origins, find you long lost family members and even help you build a personal diet and exercise plan.

As to why this trend is popular with the elderly, Smadar Ben-Asher, an educational psychologist and a senior lecturer at Kaye Academic College of Education, explains that “… A person will look back at his life and tries to give them meaning. He can feel like he missed out or, alternatively, he can feel satisfaction with the way his life went and the traces he leaves behind in the world. Faced with the knowledge that the end of his life is approaching, an attempt is made to see life as part of a large payment in which every detail, in each generation, has continuity importance. Thus his life and existence in the world receive a kind of fingerprint that has an imprint and importance. “


Dieting, origins or finding a partner: DNA tests have become a hot trend
Dieting, origins or finding a partner: DNA tests have become a hot trend

By: Samar Eldina, Lecturer in the kindergarten training program at Kaye College of Education

Alongside the significant social changes taking place in the Bedouin society in the Negev, the habit of reading children’s books is not yet commonplace. In recent years, awareness of “Book Week” has grown, but one week is not enough, even if it is the beginning of a new trend.

In the Arab society in Israel, which includes the Bedouin society, awareness of the importance of instilling habits of reading and love of books for children has grown in recent years, but the road is still long. The Ministry of Education is working to promote the issue through the “Makatbat Alphanus” (The Oil Lamp Library) program, which has been in existence for five years.

In this program the children receive eight quality books a year. However, in order for the program to make a significant change, parents need to be instructed on how to read with their children and encourage them to read for themselves. To this end, professionals must be trained to guide their parents, and to enrich the public space with quality books.

As part of the National Student Day, Avi Bohbut, The Chairman of the Kaye College Students Association, visited the Knesset Education Committee and the faction meetings of the various parties, and presented alarming data, indicating that only 37% of the students are social activists and volunteers.

Bohbut suggested that these rates could be improved by offering the students college credits for their volunteer work, which is something that MK Meirav Ben-Ari’s is submitting a bill about.

Kaye College though is not waiting to see whether the bill will pass and they already offer academic credits in exchange for 100 hours of community service.

Prof. Lea Kozminsky, the College’s President: “Kaye College believes in combining academic excellence with community work. I am proud of the fact that our college leads many social projects that affect broad and diverse populations in Israeli society. Students who contribute to the community demonstrate sensitivity and empathy to the needs of others.”

Prof. Shlomo Beck, former Kaye College President, writs about how every attempt at creative and critical thinking by the teachers in the Israeli Education System is met with a brick wall of resistance.

Recent PISA tests have shown that Israel’s position in education among developed countries is unsatisfactory. The pupils’ achievements are lower than necessary and their educational gaps are among the largest in the world.

According to Andreas Schleicher, Division Head and coordinator of the OECD Programme for International Student Assessment, Israel’s next generation will no longer be prepared for the future because pedagogy in Israel is very traditional and standard.

“Everything is an issue of money” says Dr. Arnon Ben-Israel, cultural geographer and head of the Geography and Human Environment specialization in Kaye College of Education, “…It’s difficult to exaggerate the importance of the law and the added social and environmental value it contains. It must be fortified in any way, and amended so that it will also apply to plans approved before its enactment in the event that they are not implemented, because we have no beaches to waste”.

Kaye Academic College of Education in Beer Sheba is one of Israel’s most important academic teacher training colleges.

Apart from the College’s prestigious academic programs (particularly those led by the Departments of Art, Special Education, Physical Education, and others), the College has taken up the challenge of promoting social issues and working for society and the community, as an integral part of its academic activity. For that purpose, the College has set up a project called “Kayehilla” (the Hebrew word for community is “kehilla”), in which some 150 students from the College volunteer in a wide range of fields in their communities. Volunteering is recognized as an academic credit, although in many cases the students continue to volunteer after completing their studies at the College.

At the beginning of the year, over 30 organizations contacted the College in order to recruit high-quality student volunteers. These organizations included old age homes, a psychiatric hospital, Beit Galgalim (House of Wheels, an organization that operates for the benefit of the disabled), and others. At a later stage, outstanding students from the Kayehilla project participated in an activists’ exhibition describing their volunteer activity, in order to encourage other students to join in the effort.

In addition to the various programs and projects run by the College and aimed at the community, it also invites the community into the College, under the guidance of the Od (“More”) Association, which, on behalf of the College, coordinates the informal educational activities for the community. One of the Association’s central programs is The Social Academy – a special study program for students on the autistic spectrum. These students attend the College twice a week and hear a wide variety of lectures designated for them, on subjects ranging from cinema and theater to environmental education and sex education. Their parents say that this program gives the students enormous satisfaction and a feeling that they are no different from other young people.

Another program run by the Od Association is Tarshish – the School for Retirees, at which Kaye College offers over 80 courses to some 600 senior citizens who wish to enrich their knowledge in various fields such as art, languages, history, and more.

Apart from the social activism of the College as a whole, there are specific study tracks in which social activism is a very significant part of the curriculum. One of these is the REGEV track (RGV is a Hebrew acronym for Teaching Out of the Box), aimed at outstanding students. In this program, the students are required to demonstrate both academic excellence and meaningful social involvement. The social activism in the program is extremely varied: students volunteer on archaeological digs in Beer Sheba in collaboration with the Antiquities Authority, female Bedouin students teach spoken Arabic at the high school in Omer, students volunteer in the Tarshish School and in the Social Academy, and more, while meeting the highest standards of academic requirements.

Another program that incorporates significant contribution to the community is Shvilim (“Paths”), for students who have already been working for several years in education and want to earn an academic degree while continuing their educational work. The program’s emphasis is on ongoing dialogue with the community. The students on this program take part in a social entrepreneurship accelerator project, during which they build a project for the community, from the stage of thinking up the idea, to planning and implementation. Among the outstanding projects in recent years we can find the project of Manar Abu Riash from Rahat, who developed a support group for Bedouin women with fertility problems. The group sessions gave these women the strength to speak, and realize that they are not alone, on a subject that for many years was taboo in Bedouin society, and to understand that they were strong and worthy in their own right.

The President of the College, Prof. Lea Kozminsky: “Kaye College believes in combining academic excellence with social and educational activism. I am proud of the fact that our College leads many social projects that affect large and diverse population groups in Israeli society. To my delight, the student volunteers show sensitivity and active responsibility towards the needs of others.”

Abu-Riash, an education student in the “Shvilim” (paths) program in Kaye College, established a support group for Bedouin women who are undergoing fertility treatments.

These days in institutions for higher education, the second semester of the school year is starting. For most of the students this means returning to their routine of classes, while having one main goal – to finish the course already. It turns out that in Kaye College of education in Be’er Sheva, things are different. In Kaye College, some of the courses are taught in the “Heyutagogy” method, a unique method where the student is given the freedom to decide how his or her course will look. Kaye College is the first in the country to teach in this method and already has ten lecturers teaching various courses with it.

This week, students from Kaye College in Be’er Sheva visited the “Bayit Ha’ge’e” (proud house) in Be’er Sheva (a center that organizes various events and programs for the LGBT community) as part of their course in multiculturalism. During this visit, which was organized by two students – Maria Gershkivich and Amy Zarfati – the students heard about the center’s activities in Be’er Sheva and they learned various LGBT words and concepts. The students, of which half were Jewish and half were Bedouin, received tools as future educators, with which they will be able to respond sensitively and inclusively to students from the LGBT community.

Bedouin students from Kaye Academic College of Education in Be’er Sheva are taking part in a unique project in which they translate material for a fun mathematical game for the hundreds of children refugees from Syria that are in Germany ∙ The President of the College: “I am happy we have an opportunity to help the education of the children of the Syrian refugees”.

A new initiative in Kaye Academic College of Education translates math games and questionnaires for about 100 child Syrian refugees currently living in Germany. These are virtual games and questionnaires in the math department that were donated to the refugees by Dr. Mark Applebaum, a mathematics professor and concessionaire of the organization “Kangaroo Israel”. Kangaroo is a worldwide program which purpose is to teach math in a fun way and operates under the academic jurisdiction of the college. As of today 75 countries participate in the Kangaroo initiative, and a respectable amount of them are Muslim countries.

Dr. Applebaum headed the translation project along with several Bedouin students from the math department, and they made sure to translate games and questionnaires from English to Arabic so as to ease the mathematical studies of the child Syrian refugees living in Germany.

“The concessionaire of “Kangaroo” in Germany asked us to help translating mathematical questionnaires for the children of the Syrian refugees. We were happy to undertake the idea and to that end I was aided by the students from the Math department who are of the Bedouin sector, by translation to Arabic of the problems and quizzes”, says Applebaum.

Applebaum notes that Kaye College is a flagship for coexistence and that the opportunity to help the children of the Syrian refugees fell into his lap ‘like a ripe fruit’ and he immediately started the translating work. “This is a long process, in which the material first has to be translated from English to Hebrew and then from English to Arabic, but this project is very appropriate for Kaye College, whose motto is coexistence and tolerance. The fact that we are helping the children of the Syrian refugees gives us a great sense of satisfaction and the goal is to continue this project for many more years”.

Applebaum: “I joined Kangaroo Worldwide five years ago; the franchising is given to a person who has an institution, company or group supporting them. I turned to the President of the college, Professor Lea Kozminsky, and asked her to sponsor “Kangaroo” in Israel. Since then we have been creating content, questionnaires and virtual quizzes that are meant to serve Jewish and Arad children and cause them to enjoy learning math”.

Professor Lea Kozminsky, the Preside of Kaye College: “Every child, no matter who he or she is, is entitled to a quality education. I am happy that Kaye College can aid the studies of the children of the Syrian refugees, who have escaped to Germany”.

Specifically in Israel it is very important to educate for multiculturalism. The Israeli society is made up of many different cultures, but the education in Israel allows this diversity to exist without almost any meeting between the different cultures. This creates and even greater rift in the society and without mending it we will not be able to continue as a society.
