Values-Based Judaic Curriculum
Our interactive, values-based curriculum helps children develop a positive Jewish identity. The pluralistic curriculum is based on values we all share, like “Using your inner strength to do what’s right” and “Taking responsibility for your actions.” We curate resources from BimBam, JChoice, and more, to bring you the most engaging and innovative Jewish educational content, including videos, text studies, blessings, and stories.
Our K-2 curriculum contains 28 values-based lesson plans for each grade that include:
- “Fun With Hebrew” – an introduction to Hebrew letters and words
- STEAM activities to explore 12 Jewish values and holidays
Students in kindergarten and first grade experience each lesson using the five senses. In second grade, students learn and emulate a Jewish author or artist whose work relates to the lesson. Download samples:
In grades 3-7, each of the seven values (or units) consists of four lessons. The 28 lessons incorporate Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) skills that enable students to build positive relationships and make responsible decisions. Through the values, students explore Jewish text, history, tefillah, and holidays. Download samples:
