NOmULPAN EXPERT TO VISIT HERE
AHAHON ROSENNE . . . author of Eleph Milim
Arrangements have just been concluded for a one-day visit to Vancouver on September 25 of one of the world's most prominent Hebrew educators, Aharon Rosenne, pioneer and expert in the development of the Ulpanim in Israel, Canada and the U.S.A. He will conduct workshops here with both Vancouver Ulpan Institute teachers and Vteachers of the Talmud Tor ah and the Congregational schools on the new methodology of teaching Hebrew to children and adults. His visit is sponsored by the Keren Hatar-but and the Zionist Organization of B.C.
The forthcoming visit of such a distinguished guest has engendered considerable excit-ment in the city and it is hoped tl^at it :will}: be possible. to arrange an open communal meeting during Mr. Rosenne's visit at which the entire com-muitv will be able to hear this noted lecturer and top educator give a model lesson in his famous Ulpan method of teaching,
Mr. Rosenne's method of teaching Hebrew to adults is used here only at the Keren Hatarbut classes which .are offered by the Vancouver tJlpah Institute. Classes this season will be held as part of the New Centre program, conmiencing in November, and were previously inaugurated and conducted for two years at the Talmud Torah. Since Mr. Rosenne's visit will constitute an invaluable refresher course and aid to Ulpan Institute teachers here, the classes this season are expected to be without parallel in ';erms of the newest methods and approaches to Hebrew. It is anticipated that communal 'nterest will accordingly reach ^ new high in participation in his stimulating and pleasurable nanner of learning Hebrew.
Mr. Rosenne,, who is presently on a short-term mission o the Department of Education ind Culture of the United States Tewish Agency, was first invited to Canada in 1957 to guide •^^he Keren Hatarbut in the in-';roduction of the Ulpanim methods in Canada. Under his direction and guidance, a veritable "revolution" took place in the nriethods of teaching Hebrew to adults.
