The experiment that saw the Anne and Max Tanenbaum Community Hebrew Academy of Toronto reduce tuition in a bid to attract more students appears to be working. About 300 applications for students entering Grade 9 in the 2018-19 school year have been received, a significant jump from the current enrolment of 200 students in Grade 9, said Jonathan Levy, TanenbaumCHAT’s head of school.
High school can be hard for adolescents. For LGBTQ students who come out in a Jewish school, there can be additional minefields, from insensitive peers to dogmatic teachers, but they may also find support, sometimes when they least expect it. Sarah Jacobsohn, a Grade 11 student at Winnipeg’s Gray Academy of Jewish Education, said coming out is not an easy process, but it wasn’t more difficult because she attends a Jewish school.
Canada will not follow the United States’ lead and recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, a move that was hailed by mainstream Jewish organizations in this country. In a much-anticipated announcement on Dec. 6, U.S. President Donald Trump formally recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and said that planning is underway for the construction of a new embassy in the city, which was one of his key campaign promises.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
