We understand that planning a curriculum, whether for a single grade or for an entire school, can feel overwhelming. That's why we offer a variety of resources to help you navigate the process.

Planning Guides

Consult our downloadable pullout guides - organized by grade level, subject and ability - to match your needs with the best Hebrew and Jewish heritage materials for your students.  Download the Judaica Planning Guide or the Hebrew Curriculum Guide.

Consider three BIG IDEAS that encompass the key values and purpose of part-time Jewish education programs in our guide, "Big Ideas for Jewish Learning." This guide maps out the essential questions for exploring those big ideas, describes evidence of learning, and offers suggestions for materials and projects to teach those big ideas.

Crunched for time? We've put together a condensed Judaics Curriculum Guide with FREE lessons from Behrman House to help you structure a yearlong curriculum using free student lessons and excerpts from Behrman House teacher guides. It is built on three BIG IDEAS for part-time Jewish education programs –whether they are held in-person or remotely or a mix.

Our guide, "Consider Your Hebrew Goals" helps you think through choices appropriate for your objectives and points you to Hebrew materials that meet your goals. 

Plan ahead to work with teachers. Help them set professional and personal goals, using resources in The Teacher Planner. Click here for a sample goal planner.
