About the Building Jewish Identity Series:
Establish a foundation for lifelong Jewish engagement
The Building Jewish Identity series introduces students to core knowledge that is essential to developing a strong Jewish identity. It uses stories, interviews, and activities to explore the ethical teachings, laws, language, rituals, symbols, and myths that create a distinctive Jewish worldview using a journal/activity book format that invites personal reflection.
The series is designed to be used in four units over two years. Appropriate for grades 3, 4, and 5, each volume is available separately to allow maximum flexibility to fit into your program.
Our Jewish community, our shared language, our sacred writings, our stories and history as Jews help unite us and connect us to each other and to our Jewish identity. Our experience of time and celebration of important moments provides a lifelong, emotional connection to our heritage, our culture, and our values.
