We've created free, ready-to-go lessons and downloadable resources to make it easy for you to provide meaningful learning experiences with your students. Every few months we have been curating Hebrew and Judaics resources for learners of all ages, whether you are back in the classroom, continuing remote learning, or implementing a blended home/school environment.

Here are some Hanukkah lessons for hands-on learning this holiday. You can find these resources - along with many others - right our home page. 

In addition, we've also put together are some Guides for Remote Learning for Hebrew and for Judaics with smart tips that can be applied to any of the free resources on this new resource page. And top it off, we’ve put together a Curriculum Guide to show how three Big Ideas can help you structure a year-long curriculum using these and forthcoming free resources.
