The Jewish Education Center of Cleveland is pleased to offer an exciting, new values-based curriculum designed for learners in kindergarten through sixth grade. Via five values-focused modules, learners gain a variety of tools that build resiliency and supportive strategies for better managing the challenges that life can throw their way, such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
The learning approach is a hybrid of synchronous learning in a weekly cohort-based mifgash (“gathering”). At home, children delve into module-related content and concepts with a fair amount of independence from the adults in their lives. Lower elementary age children explore them through a curated box of hands-on activities, while upper elementary learners receive engaging weekly challenges.
Learning is anchored in Jewish texts and tales of our past, offering rich understandings of Jewish values that build resiliency and guide personal and communal health and wellness:

With thanks to the generous support of The Jewish Education Center of Cleveland and The Covenant Foundation, all is available for free download.
