Jewish Values: A Journey of Discovery
Shalom Learning’s values-based curriculum includes the core components of Jewish education while connecting Jewish values to students’ own real-life experiences, so students will love learning about being Jewish!
Each value kickstarts the exploration of Jewish texts, history, and holidays. It's a chance for students to think about how they can live out the value and explain what it means for their own lives. This deepens their ties to Jewish learning and global Jewish communities. They get to dive into various Jewish identities and grasp the significance of Judaism for Jews everywhere.
This eight-session course will explore the following Jewish Values:
- B'tzelem Elohim (in the image of God) - Honoring the image of God in ourselves and others
- Gevurah (inner strength) - Using one's inner strength to do what is good and right; the holiday of Hanukkah
This program is designed for children who are not currently enrolled in a Jewish educational program.
Students should have access to general writing and drawing instruments.
