Israel

Copies of new book, Genesis, now available

After all the celebrations of Christmas and New Year it is now time to get back to reading again! I have some copies of Conductive Education Press’s latest title, Genesis, to dispose of.
This book tells something of what Tsad Kadima has done in Israel, and what this has achieved. It recounts something of the process of creating the ‘Tsad Kadima family’, which has developed over the years in a manner unique within the world of Conductive Education. This includes the vital matter of sustainability, Tsad Kadima demonstrating the potential for national Conductive Education systems to reproduce themselves and evolve for the benefit of generations to come.
For further information, see
Copies are for sale at £5 each, plus £1.50 postage and packing for the UK, and  plus £3.70 for Europe.

In the summer Conductive Education Press was asked by Tsad Kadima (Israel) if we would publish their story to celebrate 30 years of the organisation. Naturally we agreed, and are very pleased to announce that the book, Genesis, edited by Rony Schenker and published jointly by Conductive Education Press and Tsad Kadima,  is now available. An abstract on the back cover states:

This book tells something of what Tsad Kadima has done in Israel, and what this has achieved. It recounts something of the process of creating the ‘Tsad Kadima family’, which has developed over the years in a manner unique within the world of Conductive Education. This includes the vital matter of sustainability, Tsad Kadima demonstrating the potential for national Conductive Education systems to reproduce themselves and evolve for the benefit of generations to come.

 The book is the result of a lot of hard work by the final year students of the Israeli conductor training course who interviewed the parents and the professionals involved in bringing Conductive Education to Israel. It highlights the unique perspective and determination of Israeli parents 30 years ago, an example to us all.

There is an early bird price for the book  of £5.00 (plus postage and packing) on the occasion of the coming 9th World Congress of Conductive Education in Budapest.

Israelis due to start new course for conductors in September

I have just read  on Andrew’s blog

http://www.conductive-world.info/2010/07/center-for-conductive-education-and.html      %20about

about the new course, set up by Tsad Kadima, for training conductors in Israel which is due to start later in the year. What an exciting development this is for Israel and may prove a model for other countries to follow.

 Hearty congratulations to all concerned in setting this up and I will look forward to hearing more about it in the future.
Over the years I have sent material and references to Rony Schenker at Tsad Kadima and asssume these  will now be part of a collection of materials built up over time, making a valuable resource for the students. I hope that the virtual catalogue I am developing at

http://www.virtualcelibrary.blogspot.com/

will be useful to them too.

Maybe I will be sent some documents in Hebrew on the Internet  to include! Remember all contributions and suggestions are welcome.
