  1. Stephen Covey and High Holidays: A Text Study for the Busy Jewish Professional

    Stephen Covey and High Holidays: A Text Study for the Busy Jewish Professional

    The High Holidays are traditionally times of reflection. We are called upon to take time to consider the year just ending and the one to come. Of course, those of us in the “business” of Judaism—educators, clergy, teachers, staff—may find ourselves asking, “And with all I have going on right now, when exactly is that reflection supposed to happen?” This time of year - particularly this year, which has been filled with so much grief, anxiety, and tumult - can feel so hectic for us that this particular moment may not feel at all like a good time to reflect. In fact, it might feel like the perfect time to have give in to the stress. Too often we get caught up in the urgent and critical task of helping others get this new year underway, and set our own needs for reflection aside.

    As a result we may feel out of step with those reflective messages of the High Holidays.

    Time Constrained? Budget Crunched? Need a Judaics Curriculum? Start Here with Our Instant Resources

    With so much uncertainty around the health of your community and how to reach and teach students and families in this environment, Behrman House has been looking for ways to help educators, to try to make things just a little easier.

    One of the things we have done is to develop a Judaics curriculum guide for part-time Jewish education programs that can help you structure a program to carry you through the school year. The guide is based on a variety of FREE resources that we have gathered together in one convenient place for you.

    This curriculum is particularly well-suited for small schools, those facing a budget crunch, or  those who may be cutting down on meeting times on Zoom and just need a few really good lessons to help you strengthen connections with your learners.
