Shema Is for Real offers students a chance to (1) review the meaning and theme of individual prayers, (2) emphasize the way prayers fit together to form services, and (3) rehearse and practice the elements of a service. It offers all the things students need to get ready for their b’nai mitzvah celebrations.

Every prayer has an origin story. The Rabbis explained the kavannah of a prayer by telling the story of the first time the prayer was said. A Young Person’s Guide to the Origins of Jewish Prayer introduces these stories to help your students express their own spiritual understand of the prayers in the siddur.

Joel Lurie Grishaver

Experiencing Jewish Prayer is a perfect introduction to the meaning of prayers for students who have no previous experience studying prayer. Experiencing Jewish Prayer adds meaning and context to God and Jewish Prayer and, in the process, builds memories. This experiential book makes the standard liturgy (from all movements) into a meaningful whole.

Stories We Pray Insights into the Inner-Work of Jewish Worship Joel Lurie Grishaver

Every prayer has a story. When the Rabbis of the Talmud wanted to explain what a prayer means they told the story of the first time a prayer was said. They would root each prayer in the spiritual history of major Jewish figures. For a full description see page 79.

Experiencing Jewish Prayer teaches no Hebrew. That has to happen somewhere else. This is a perfect supplement to a different prayer teaching resource. Add it to your liturgy curriculum.

Experiencing the Torah

Jane Golub, Joel Lurie Grishaver, and Alan Rowe Grades: 3–5. Format: Textbook and workbook. Subjects: Torah study, Bible heroes

Being Torah brings students into Torah by inviting them to become biblical commentators. Based on a real translation of the biblical text, crafted specifically for third to fifth graders, students are drawn into the words of Torah. Using colored clues, they focus on the word clues embedded in the text—the number of times given words are used in a story, the changes between what one person says and what another person says that person said, and the parallel words that link one story to another. This is not a book about Torah—it is a book of Torah—making Torah study accessible. The Being Torah Student Commentary helps break down the biblical stories into a series of individual inquiries. It is designed specifically to create classroom community. BEING TORAH [ITEM #15009]. . . . . . . FOUR OR MORE COPIES . . . . . . . . . .

Joel Lurie Grishaver

Seymour Rossel

Grades: 5–7. Format: Textbook. Subjects: Bible, Midrash.

Grade: 6–adult. Format: Textbook. Subjects: Bible, Archaeology, Biblical Criticism, Bible Commentary.

Make a Midrash Out of Me is an imaginative way to study the book of Genesis. Each chapter begins with the Torah’s text, laid out as bibliodrama in script form. Students engage with the narrative by becoming the people in the story. Students make their own midrash by interviewing the Bible characters, gaining insight into the text between the lines, followed by focused study of actual midrash from the Jewish tradition. As a cumulative activity, students analyze and synthesize what they’ve learned to create their own piece of visual or literary midrash.

Bring Torah text and modern commentary to your pre- and post-bar mitzvah students. Each chapter covers one weekly portion, featuring: • Torah text in gender-sensitive translations • “Quotes to Remember” in Hebrew and English • Interactive discussion questions in each portion • Graphs, charts, maps, and photographs of the realia of archaeological and biblical criticism

Make a Midrash Out of Me is a chance for a wonderfully creative classroom experience. It offers a teacher a chance to combine drama, creative writing, and art with the study of Torah and midrash. It offers a learning process where knowledge and imagination are intertwined.

• A synopsis of the Haftarah for each portion and the traditional reason it was chosen • Wide-ranging comments from Talmud, Midrash, Rashi, and other traditional commentators set side-by-side with comments from modern Bible scholars from Cassuto and Leibowitz to Peli and Sarna, set side-by-side with evidence from archaeology, linguistics, Egyptology, and a dozen other sciences that have been applied to the study of Torah over the last two centuries.

Think Prophets is a series of fourteen lessons that provide a patchwork opportunity to study the third of the Bible known as “The Prophets.”

With Write Stuff lessons you can bring some serious text study of the books of K’tuvim to the classroom.

Some lessons provide an overview of specific books, such as Amos or Judges. Some discuss individual prophetic figures such as Nathan or Miriam. Some lessons will allow for the study of specific stories, such as Hannah’s dialogue with Eli. Others will deal with the nature of prophecy. These lessons combine historical overviews with segments of the biblical text shaped for classroom study. The lessons may be assembled into the prophets curriculum you want.

These five lessons combine historical and/ or literary overviews with segments of the biblical text shaped for classroom study, accompanied by midrashic texts where appropriate. They allow you to teach about a specific part of K’tuvim or about a set of texts. Just pick the lessons that fit your curriculum. Each lesson comes with twelve copies of the student material and a teacher’s guide.

Think Prophets is available in a student pack (one copy of each lesson per student) or as indiviual prophets (in sets of twelve per lesson). The Think Prophets Teacher’s Guide covers all fourteen individual lessons. THINK PROPHETS STUDENT PACK [ITEM #61115] . .

The Circle of Jewish Life

by Carrie Hearshen

By Joel Lurie Grishaver Grades: 4–7. Format: Textbook. Subject: Jewish lifecycle. Key Features—Empower students to meaningfully participate in the broad range of Jewish life cycle events. Chaptera include traditional texts, full scripts of life cycle ceremonies, art projects, and stories.Focus on diversity of Jewish life, with elements that address adoption, divorce, gay marriage, and mourning. Chapters on lifelong Jewish learning, aging, and conversion push learning about the Jewish life cycle beyond brit milah, b’nai mitzvah, and weddings.

Grades: 3–4. Format: Eight lessons. Subject: Jewish lifecycle.

Eight BJL Lifecycle folders make studying lifecycle moments and practices easier for students to embrace. The eight folders provide students an opportunity to look at the steps in a Jewish life. They can be used in any order with any starting point. Each unit introduces key vocabulary, basic concepts, and provides a story about each Jewish life cycle event.

Life cycle is important because it is a place where our students will encounter Judaism in real life. They will all celebrate weddings, become bar or bat mitzvah, and will face funerals. It is in those moments that the Jewish tradition can be a rich resource and make a difference. In order for that to happen they need two things: (1) They need to know the dance steps. That includes knowing the names, prayers, rituals, and vocabulary associated with a particular lifecycle event. But also (2) they need to have a sense of its meaning, of the values it actualizes, of the way it connects the Eternal to real life experience. The Circle of Jewish Life is the only life cycle resource that enables both of these.

GRADES 3–7 LIFE CYCLE

BJL: Life Cycle

This is a life cycle book for the new millennium; one that describes Jewish life in the ways that our students actually experience. It contains both texts and activities. It enters areas where you need to go, ones that you’ve never had a resource for before: conversion, adoption, divorce, the meaning of growing old and more. The book is rich in Jewish texts, stories, and opportunities to not only learn the vocabulary of the Jewish life cycle but to enter into its concepts as well.

These folders unfold eight major lifecycle events. Through stories and hands-on activities, simple explanations and family involvement, students study the moments in life that connect us to Jewish life and God. Families are actively invited to become part of the process. The BJL Lifecycle folders look at the meaning of Life Cycle, Birth Rituals, Torah Rituals, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, Family, Marriage, Old Age and Death.

Bible Play

Grades: 3–4. Format: Eight 4-page lessons. Subjects: Jewish values, ethics.

Rabbi Dan Grossman

The eight BJL Mitzvot folders make the doing of mitzvot into concepts and practices that students will embrace. Rooted in stories, BJL Mitzvot invites families to join their children in living core values of the Jewish tradition. Mitzvot are Jewish things to do (and Jewish things not to do). These folders turn eight ethical mitzvot into values that can be easily lived. Through stories and hands-on activities, simple explanations and family involvement, students not only learn about “the things God wants us to do,” but are encouraged to make them part of their lives. Families are actively invited to become part of the process. Topics: Tzedakah, Feeding the Hungry, Keeping the Earth, Welcoming Guests, Derekh Eretz, Visiting the Sick, Guarding Your Tongue and Talmud Torah.

Grades: 5–7. Format: instant lesson. Subjects: Disability, stereotypes, midrash.

Bible Play is a midrashic play that tells the story of Isaac, Jacob, and Moses, each of whom had a significant disability. [ITEM #15370] . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .$11.95

God: Jewish Choices for Struggling with the Ultimate Edited by Josh Barkin Grades: 8–12. Format: Textbook. Subject: God.

Judaism’s approach to the Divine is not a black and white matter. Finding belief is not about answering simple yesor-no questions. God is about asking tough questions, finding that there’s usually more than one “Jewish” answer, and trying to make a choice that fits. That’s why we asked forty rabbinical students, new voices in Jewish thought, and young Jewish educators to answer some big questions about God. They identify as Conservative, Reform, Renewal, Modern Orthodox, Reconstructionist, and nondenominational. They’re traditionalists and iconoclasts, activists and authors. This book is a compendium of their answers. Carefully edited and organized to be a text for the Jewish classroom, God: Jewish Choices for Struggling with the Ultimate is a resource for helping every student clarify and expand his or her own beliefs.

Stories We Pray: Insights into the Inner-Work of Jewish Worship Joel Lurie Grishaver

This handbook is a core resource for a year-long training program. Included are insights into child development, management strategies, and the dynamics of the school and the classroom.

Every prayer has a story. When the rabbis of the Talmud wanted to explain what a prayer means they told the story of the first time a prayer was said. They would root each prayer in the spiritual history of major Jewish figures. By knowing these stories, we get a sense of what each prayer should mean to us. By speaking of famous moments that were human breakthroughs with God, we get to look at our own relationship with God.
